Method of Usage



What is Exemestane?


Exemestane is effective in treating certain types of breast cancer in women after menopause such as hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer.


This medicine helps to prevent cancer from returning and should be taken only after a prescription from a doctor.


There are some breast cancers that are made to grow faster through a natural hormone known as estrogen.


Exemestane reduces amount of estrogen that body makes and aids in slowing or reversing growth of breast cancers.


This medicine is not safe for use in women of childbearing age.


Doctors also prescribe exemestane to women who have been treated with Tamoxifen medicine for 2 to 3 years.


US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Exemestane for first time in 1999 and marketed it under the brand name Aromasin.


Aromasin tablets are available but generic Exemestane tablets have been available for a long time.


One can buy Exemestane only after a prescription from a doctor.


Exemestane cost is very reasonable when purchased from a licensed pharmacy.


Depending on patient’s condition, Exemestane 25 mg can be given alone or with other types of treatment.


What are exemestane uses?

How does exemestane work in your body?


Exemestane is a medication that is a member of the aromatase inhibitor class.


Aromatase is a protein in body that is responsible for converting other hormones into estrogen.


By obstructing aromatase, Exemestane reduces amount of estrogen present in your body.


Estrogen can fuel development of certain types of breast cancer cells and without estrogen, cancer cells are not able to grow or spread.
