Anabrez 1 mg
Anabrez is a medicine classified as a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor. Anabrez contains Anastrozole as an active ingredient. Anabrez is indicated for postmenopausal women as a treatment for breast cancer. It can be used alone or as a combination of different types of treatment which may include radiation, surgery et al. in curing breast cancer.
Anabrez works by shrinking breast tumors through reduction of estrogen, a hormone produced by the body which aids the growth of these tumors that are cancerous. This is possible since the active ingredient of Anabrez which is Anastrozole is used to inhibit aromatase enzyme which is important in the process of formation of estrogen. The enzyme converts different sex hormones such as testosterone and androstenedione into estrogen and hence when inhibited, the process of forming estrogen is directly halted.
Anabrez is available as tablets that should be taken orally. Anabrez is mostly used where other treatment options have proved unsuccessful and should strictly be used as prescribed by the doctor. You can take Anabrez with or without food but in both cases, try taking it together with a full glass of water. Ensure that you have notified your doctor first and follow their instructions should you for any reason wish to discontinue using this drug. Anabrez can be used for long-term treatment plans stretching for up to 5 years or more.
