Medication guide Generic Femara (Letrozole 2.5 mg):
What is Femara?
Femara is a brand name for the drug Letrozole, a type of aromatase inhibitor. Femara is primarily prescribed for treating certain types of breast cancer or preventing recurrence of breast cancer during remission. Femara is also used as a fertility drug for inducing ovulation. It may also be used for certain women’s health problems such as endometriosis. Femara can also be used for other purposes not listed here.
How does Femara work?
The body makes the hormone estrogen by converting it from the natural chemical androgen. Enzymes called aromatase are responsible for turning the androgen into estrogen. The way that Femara works is by blocking aromatase, thus preventing the production of estrogen.
Even though the body needs estrogen for certain functions, estrogen can cause certain problems, such as cancer growth. By preventing estrogen from being produced, these conditions can be treated. For fertility treatment, blocking estrogen is important because egg follicles are only ripened when low levels of estrogen are present. By blocking estrogen, more eggs are prepared and released during ovulation.
How to take Femara
The dosage and schedule of Femara depends on the condition being treated as well as other factors like how the patient responds to treatment. For treating breast cancer, Femara dosage is typically 2.5 mg taken once daily. Patients with liver problems should take smaller dosages. For other purposes, consult your doctor about how to take Femara. Some conditions may only require that Femara be taken during certain days of the menstrual cycle.
What is the difference between Femara and Generic Femara?
Femara is a brand name for the drug Letrozole. Letrozole is also made by many other brands worldwide. These versions of Letrozole are often called generic Femara and are usually much cheaper than the brand-name Femara. There is absolutely no difference between brand-name and generic Femara in terms of effectiveness and safety. The only differences are that generic Femara may contain different inactive ingredients (such as colorings or coatings) and is made by a different brand. You can save money on Letrozole when you buy it at a cheap generic shop online.
