Anastrozole - 1MG - 50T
Arimidex(Anastrozole) reduces the production of estrogen in the body. Lowering the levels of the hormone down in postmenopausal women helps curbs the growth of certain breast tumours, which require estrogen for their growth. Arimidex is normally prescribed to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women, even when the cancer has reached an advanced stage. Even if treatment has begun with Soltamax or Nolvadex,(tamoxifen) and the cancer progressed Arimidex may be used. Research has proven that with Arimidex treatment you can stay cancer free at a higher rate than with Nolvadex (tamoxifen) or Soltamax.
Arimidex does not terminate cancer cells, as in ‘kill’ them, it only stops or retards their growth. After menopause, estrogen is made in the fat cells of the body, as opposed to the ovaries in younger women. With this change in estrogen production in certain cases it can promote the growth of some cancer cells.
