Fulvestrant Drug Information

Postmenopausal women who have breast cancer may benefit from fulvestrant (Faslodex®), a prescription drug. Specifically, this product is approved to treat postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer that has become worse while using another breast cancer hormone treatment.
 
Fulvestrant injections are given once a month. The medication is only available in one dose, regardless of the severity of the cancer, age, or weight. Weakness, hot flashes, and nausea are some of the most commonly reported side effects.
 
Because fulvestrant is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information for this drug with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health issues you may have, such as kidney disease, osteoporosis, or any allergies.
