ANASTROZOLE

Information for patients
Drug Information Anastrozole contains a medicine called anastrozole. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘aromatase inhibitors’. Anastrozole is used to treat breast cancer in women who have gone through the menopause. Anastrozole works by cutting down the amount of the hormone called oestrogen that your body makes. It does this by blocking a natural substance (an enzyme) in your body called ‘aromatase’.
