Anastrozole (Arimidex®) is a medication approved to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women. In particular, it is used to treat postmenopausal women who have breast cancer that is hormone receptor-positive or that has not responded to tamoxifen. The drug works by decreasing estrogen production, which can help decrease the growth of certain types of breast cancer.
The medicine comes in tablet form, and women are typically advised to take it once a day. As with any medication, side effects are possible. Commonly reported side effects with this drug include hot flashes, nausea, and fatigue. If you have osteoporosis or have not yet gone through menopause, talk to your healthcare provider prior to taking this medication.
