Letrozole Tablets is a medication that is used for the treatment of hormonal types of breast cancer in women after menopause, as well as helping to prevent any relapse by acting as an antineoplastic which aims to inhibit the development of tumors. This is done by decreasing the amount of estrogen the body makes, and so helping to slow down and eliminate the growth of cancer.
Its active ingredient is Letrozole, which can also be used to help with ovarian stimulation.
Even with its many benefits, Letrozole can also cause thinning or the wasting of bones, because of the reduction of estrogen in your body, however, precautions can be taken beforehand and during your treatment to monitor this.
