Anastrozole is used in the treatment of breast cancer in women who have undergone menopause.

Therapeutic Category

Anastrozole: Anti-Cancer Drug (Aromatase Inhibitors)

How Anastrozole works

Anastrozole effectively helps in the treatment of breast cancer by cutting down the amount of hormone called estrogen.
