Anafed – Anastrozole 1mg Tablet
ANASTROZOLE (ANAFED) TABLET – TREATMENT FOR BREAST CANCER
Anafed Tablet is used to treat early breast cancer in postmenopausal women, either alone or in combination with other treatments such as surgery or radiation. It can also be used as the first-line treatment for advanced breast cancer that has progressed to other parts of the body or within the breast.
Anafed Tablet is a type of medicine known as an aromatase inhibitor, which reduces the quantity of oestrogen in the body. It can be taken with or without food, however, it is best if taken at the same time every day. It should be regarded as medical advice from your doctor.
Anafed Tablet treats breast cancer symptoms such as breast masses, bloody flow from the nipple, and changes in the form or texture of the breast. It works by modifying the production of hormones in the body that are required for the growth and spread of breast cancer. It may also interact with other hormones or have a direct effect on the tumour to halt its progression.
