What is this medicine?

ANASTROZOLE (an AS troe zole) is used to treat breast cancer in women who have gone through menopause. Some types of breast cancer depend on estrogen to grow, and this medicine can stop tumor growth by blocking estrogen production.

This medicine may be used for other purposes; ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have questions.

Anastrozole Coupons and Rebates

Length of Time Hormonal Therapy is Used

In the past, either tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor was used for 5 years. A recent study suggests that continuing for another 5 years (sometimes switching from tamoxifen to an aromatase inhibitor) can further reduce the risk of recurrence.

Managing the Cost of Hormonal Therapy

Hormonal therapy can be expensive, but it might help to think of it as an insurance policy against recurrence.

The costs of these medications to you can vary considerably based on your insurance coverage. In addition, some insurance companies will cover one type of aromatase inhibitor and not another.

If you are having difficulty with the cost, there are many options:

  • Work with your doctor
  • Talk to your insurance company
  • Prescription assistance programs.

Prescription Assistance Programs

If you are still having difficulty affording the prescription your doctor feels is best, there are more options. Some of these include:

Patient Prescription Assistance Programs: Learn more about the different patient prescription assistance programs available and check with drug manufacturers for assistance and savings programs.

Prescription drug discount programs: Learn more about who may benefit from a drug discount card and when they may help.

Ask for samples: Some oncologists are provided samples of aromatase inhibitors. It can't hurt to ask.

Check into disability: If you are not yet 65 but can qualify for disability, you may be able to get your medication through Medicare.
