General Information On Femara

Femara (generic name letrozole) is often prescribed as part of hormone therapy treatments used to treat breast cancer in menopausal women. It belongs to a group of drugs known as aromatase inhibitors. Many forms of breast cancer are hormone receptive, which means that they multiply in the presence of estrogen, the female hormone. The estrogen in this case is released by the aromatase enzyme. An aromatase inhibitor works by blocking these enzymes, which leads to a decrease in estrogen levels. This helps decrease the growth of such kinds of breast cancer. Such hormone receptor-positive tumors can be controlled by using Femara.

Side Effects for Femara

Some women who buy Femara and use it complain of mild side effects such as headaches, hot flashes, sweating, joint pain, increased sweating, back pain, nausea, high cholesterol, night sweats, diarrhea, vomiting, insomnia, breast pain, muscle pain, heartburn, loss of appetite, vaginal dryness, urinary tract infections, and drowsiness. In some cases, the user may experience some serious side effects such as an increase in the size of the tumor, signs of blood clotting, and unexplained vaginal bleeding. In such potentially serious cases, the doctor should be consulted at once.

Precautions

You must buy Femara only if you are in the post-menopausal phase. If you are not sure of your menopausal state or if you have just recently undergone menopause, then you can still conceive. Therefore, you must discuss contraceptive methods with your doctor. Femara can lead to low bone density, thus making patients more vulnerable to fractures. Get regular tests undertaken to measure your bone density. Also keep monitoring your cholesterol levels, as Femara can lead to an increase in cholesterol as well.

Inform your doctor in case you are suffering from osteoporosis, liver disease, or any kind of allergies. Femara can cause dizziness and drowsiness, so be careful while driving or doing any work that requires you to be alert. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and wear protective clothing while going outdoors. The side effects of Femara are almost predictable and go away once the treatment is stopped.

Femara Dosage

The recommended dosage for post-menopausal women is Femara 2.5 mg taken once daily. In the case of women suffering from liver damage, the dosage can be lowered. Femara can be taken with or without food. However, it is important to maintain a schedule to maintain a constant level of the drug in the blood. The dosage prescribed depends on a number of factors such as your general health and whether you have any other medical problems. Your doctor will intimate you about the course or duration of treatment.

Interactions

Femara can interact with certain other medicines. Before you start the treatment, inform your doctor if there are any other prescription and non-prescription drugs you are taking. Estrogen or other hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drugs could decrease the effectiveness of the medicine. Oral contraceptives can also counter the effect of Femara and should not be taken during the course of treatment.
