Femara is also called letrozole. Its work is to lower the amounts of estrogen in the body of a postmenopausal woman. This can help decelerate the rate at which given breast tumors that use estrogen grow. Femara is therefore prescribed for treatment of breast cancer in women who are no longer able to have a menstrual period. Often, Femara is given to females who have also been using tamoxifen for the past five years.
How to use
Take Femara once daily according to the doctor’s instructions. Normally, a 2.5mg tablet is taken once daily with or without eating. If your breast cancer is advanced, your doctor may have you continue taking Femara for a longer period than the usual one. Even if you have an early-stage breast cancer, you will take a dose of 2.5mg once daily as long as you have been on tamoxifen therapy for the last five years. If the tumor comes back, treatment with Femara should be stopped. If you forget to take your medicine, take it the soonest you can recall providing your next-planned dose is not near. This will help you avoid taking an overdose.
Common Femara side effects may include:
- More sweating
- Higher levels of cholesterol in the body
- Feeling weak
