Action of Anastrozole

Before menopause, the ovaries are the headquarters of estrogen production by aromatase. There, however, aromatase inhibitors are ineffective and therefore can not suppress estrogen production. But aromatase also occurs in the liver, adrenal gland, adipose tissue cells and breast cancer cells. This aromatase can be blocked by anastrozole. Thus, during and after the menopause, the remaining production of estrogen comes to a standstill.

    Arimidex for Breast cancer

    I am now 53 years old and have taken Zoladex 3 years and then again very strongly got my rule. So I take Zoladex again 1 year and stopped the drug in 3 months. I hope that I do not get my rule again. Aremidex I take almost 5 years. I tolerated the medication well. The usual side effects such as hot flashes, dry vagina, light hair loss, 2 kilos increased, I like to accept if I can not get cancer again.

    Arimidex for Breast cancer

    The first two years of severe pain in my hands had done a little finger gymnastics and then it went reasonably well. Now, for a couple of weeks, I’ve been watching my hair go out slowly. My spine has deteriorated with Arimidex and I have to take BONVIVA for osteoperosis. My experience is that despite the pain in my hands, I have moved a lot which has helped me then. Also do not get my weight under control. Have since my first breast cancer surgery with 38 Bestahlungen increased in weight (56 kg) now weigh 80 kg.
