Femara® (letrozole) is a breast cancer medicine approved for use in postmenopausal women. It comes in the form of a tablet and is available in one strength -- 2.5 mg. Femara should be taken at the same time each day. This will help ensure a steady level of the drug in your body.
In most cases, postmenopausal women are prescribed a daily dosage of 2.5 mg. People who have liver disease may need to take a lower amount. Other factors that will affect a person's dose include the stage of breast cancer and whether the person is taking any medications that might interfere with Femara.
