Arimidex is a non-steroid antitumor medication of the new generation. It has replaced Tamoxifen which has similar characteristics but its efficiency is weaker.
Arimidex has Anastrozole. This ingredient is a highly selective inhibitor of aromatase, an enzyme which takes part in the intense production of estradiol. In case of the reduced level of the circulated estradiol, a stimulation of the hormone-dependent cancerous tumors is decreased.
Arimidex is indicated for the treatment of the breast cancer in women during postmenopause who have a progressing of the disease due to the high level of estradiol. Even if the therapy with Tamoxifen turned out ineffective, the use of Arimidex will help to stop a tumor progressing in 95%.
Unlike Tamoxifen, Arimidex does not block the action of the estrogenic receptors, but prevents a formation of estradiol. It means that it does not let estrogens achieve the maximal concentration in the body.
Arimidex does not have an androgenic or estrogenic activity, does not influence on the functions of the cardiovascular system and does not cause the increase of the body weight. A bone mineral density is not changed during the treatment, and it helps to protect a woman against breaks or pain in bones.
In what dose is Arimidex used?
Arimidex is produced in the pills 1 mg which should be used orally with enough water. A pill of Arimidex 1 mg lowers the level of estradiol by 80% within 24 hours. The use of more than 1 pill of Arimidex 1 mg per day is pointless because it does not lead to more evident therapeutic effect.
Arimidex 1 mg should be used every day, at the same time. It is not recommended to miss any dose but if you forgot to take a pill of Arimidex, wait for the next day and take a pill of Arimidex 1 mg. Do not take the double dose.
A maintaining therapy in the treatment of the breast cancer may take up to 5 years. If there are signs of the tumor progress, the use of Arimidex is terminated.
