ARIMIDEX – SWISS 1MG X 50 CAPSULES (ANASTROZOLE)
1mg x 50 Capsules
Each capsule contains:
ARIMIDEX 1MG contains anastrozole, which belongs to a group of medicines called aromatase inhibitors, which are used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women. Estrogen, female sex hormones, stimulate the growth of breast cancer. This medicine works by blocking the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for the production of estrogen and therefore reduces the amount of estrogen in the body. This in turn blocks the growth of breast cancer, which needs estrogen to grow, slows down or stops the growth and spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body. It is also used to prevent the tumor from spreading to other parts of the body in patients with advanced breast cancer.
This medicine is not suitable for women with breast cancer who have not completed menopause (women before menopause). Not recommended for children and adolescents. Tell your doctor before taking this medicine if you still have your period or if you have liver or kidney problems. ARIMIDEX 1MG can cause osteoporosis (thinning of the legs) due to a reduced amount of estrogen in the body. Your doctor will measure your bone density before, during or after treatment. Anastrozole is also useful as an add-on treatment in early ER + IV breast cancer, as well as in the relief of advanced cases in postmenopausal women. It is a selective nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor (an enzyme necessary for the synthesis of estrogen).
