Femara® (letrozole) is often prescribed to treat certain types of breast cancer, including hormone receptor-positive breast cancer post-surgery and advanced breast cancer that is either hormone receptor-positive or for which the hormone receptor is unknown. However, the drug is approved to treat only postmenopausal women with the condition.
Femara comes in tablet form, and is generally taken once a day. Among the factors that can affect the dosage 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 seen with this drug include hot flashes, weight gain, and weakness.
This medication may not be right for everyone. For example, if you have liver disease or certain allergies, you may not be able to take Femara. In addition, there is a risk of osteoporosis in some people taking the drug.
