Letrozol

Were you looking for information on Letrozole? Letrozol is a common misspelling of letrozole.
 
Letrozole (Femara®) is a prescription drug typically used to treat specific types of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. For example, early breast cancer that is hormone receptor-positive and advanced breast cancer that is either hormone receptor-positive or for which the hormone receptor is unknown can both be treated with the drug.
 
The medication comes as a tablet, and is generally taken once a day. Some common side effects of letrozole include hot flashes, weight gain, and joint pain. Among the conditions that you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take letrozole are liver disease (including liver failure or cirrhosis), osteoporosis, and any allergies you may have.
