Letrozole

Drug Info for letrozole

Letrozole is used treat early breast cancer in women who have experienced menopause (change of life; end of monthly menstrual periods) and who have had other treatments, such as radiation or surgery to remove the tumor. It is also used to treat early breast cancer in women who have experienced menopause and who have already been treated with a medication called tamoxifen (Nolvadex) for 5 years. Letrozole is also used in women who have experienced menopause as a first treatment of breast cancer that has spread within the breast or to other areas of the body or in women whose breast cancer has worsened while they were taking tamoxifen. Letrozole is in a class of medications called nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors. It works by decreasing the amount of estrogen produced by the body. This can slow or stop the growth of some types of breast cancer cells that need estrogen to grow.

Letrozole is a medication used in the treatment of certain breast cancers. This drug can also be used to prevent breast cancer from recurring. Letrozole works by lowering your estrogen levels which slows/reverses some cancers from growing. Letrozole is a generic drug also sold under the brand name Femara. This drug has been available for years. In the treatment of certain breast cancers, letrozole use is common.
