Letrazole

Were you looking for information on Letrozole? Letrazole is a common misspelling of letrozole.
 
Letrozole (Femara®) is a prescription medication used to treat hormone receptor-positive breast cancer and advanced breast cancer that is either hormone receptor-positive or for which the hormone receptor is unknown. It's important to keep in mind, however, that the drug is approved for use only in postmenopausal women.
 
Letrozole comes in tablet form, and is generally taken once a day. Among the factors that can affect the dose of letrozole that your healthcare provider recommends are the severity of your breast cancer, other medications you may be taking, and other medical conditions you may have. Some common side effects of letrozole include weight gain, hot flashes, and joint pain.
