Anastrozole, also known as Arimidex, is a medication used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women. It belongs to a class of drugs known as nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors.
Anastrozole works by decreasing the amount of estrogen the body makes, which can slow or reverse the growth of certain breast cancers that need estrogen to grow.
The primary use of anastrozole is in the treatment of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. Hormone receptor-positive breast cancers are types of cancers that respond to the presence of hormones like estrogen.
By reducing estrogen levels, anastrozole helps in slowing down or stopping the growth of these cancer cells. It is particularly effective in postmenopausal women, where the majority of the estrogen production occurs in body fat, and is catalyzed by the enzyme aromatase, which Anastrozole inhibits.
While anastrozole is an effective treatment for breast cancer, it is not suitable for everyone. For example, it is not typically used in premenopausal women.
Anastrozole is available in tablet form and is usually taken once a day, with or without food. The exact dosage will depend on the type and stage of breast cancer being treated, as well as other factors such as age, weight, and overall health. It is important to take anastrozole exactly as prescribed by a doctor.
In the United States, anastrozole is available under the following brand names:
Common side effects associated with anastrozole may include:
