What Is ARIMIDEX?
ARIMIDEX 1 mg is a prescription hormonal treatment that helps fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of estrogen in the body. ARIMIDEX is a selective, non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor, which signifcantly lowers serum estradiol (estrogen) concentrations, without interfering with the formation of adrenal corticosteroids or aldosterone.
It is FDA approved for the following 3 conditions:
- As an adjuvant treatment for postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive early breast cancer
- For the initial treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor-unknown locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer
- For the treatment of postmenopausal women with advanced breast cancer that has progressed following treatment with tamoxifen
Is ARIMIDEX right for you?
If you’ve been diagnosed with hormone receptor-positive (HR+) early breast cancer, you and your doctor may be discussing treatment options for reducing the risk of recurrence. Only your doctor can decide if ARIMIDEX is right for you.
