Letrozole (Femara) belongs to a category and class of drugs known as aromatase inhibitors (AIs). Aromatase inhibitors belong to an even broader class of drugs known as anti–estrogens. The other subcategory of drug under the anti-estrogens category is known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), such as Nolvadex and Clomid. AIs and SERMs make up anti-estrogens. Aromatase inhibitors differ greatly from SERMs in their action and how they deal with the issues of estrogen control. The misunderstanding that SERMs, such as Nolvadex and Clomid, serve to lower estrogen levels must first be addressed before delving into any further details.
Letrozole is a non-steroidal and non-suicidal aromatase inhibitor, and belongs to the third generation line of aromatase inhibitors. Letrozole is very identical to Arimidex and is one of the three major aromatase inhibitors available (Arimidex, Aromasin, and Letrozole). The difference between Letrozole and the other two major aromatase inhibitors is the fact that although it is utilized for the treatment of post-menopausal female breast cancer patients, it is actually specifically utilized for what is known as Estrogen receptor unknown breast cancer. This is a breast cancer condition in which the diagnosis indicates that it is unknown as to whether or not Estrogen is the culprit, or whether or not the breast cancer is aggravated by Estrogen. As with all other aromatase inhibitors, Letrozole is normally utilized after first-line treatments (such as Nolvadex) has failed, but various conditions may require Letrozole to be used as a first-line treatment, though this is rare.
Letrozole Administration and Uses
Most women who are prescribed Letrozole in order to treat breast cancer take two and half milligrams per day. These doses are very potent and they are typically taken until breast cancer conditions go away. If a patient with breast cancer goes into remission, she’ll be switched to Nolvadex (from Letrozole) in order to prevent a recurrence of the same disease. The likelihood of weakness and fatigue at this dosage level is quite high.
Anabolic steroids users typically take lower doses, such as one half to one milligram of the drug per day. Men who are experiencing “man boobs” (gynecomastia) which are linked with usage of anabolic steroids sometimes take higher dosages, such as two and half milligrams per day. However, this higher dose does raise the risk of side effects.
This drug is available under the Femara brand. Femara markets it all over the world, in convenient tablet form. You’ll need a prescription in order to obtain it. It’s also accessible illegally through the black market. Research chemical labs may sell Letrozole, as may suppliers of anabolic steroids (underground labs). If you purchase this drug from a steroid dealer, in tablet format, you will definitely be breaking American law.
There are plenty of aromatase inhibitors available in the marketplace, the most popular and famous of which is Arimidex. That being said, a lot of people do prefer to use Letrozole. Sometimes, people experiment with both, at different times, in order to see what works best for them.
