Adverse Drug Reaction Classification System

Pharmaceutical Information
Drug Name Anastrozole
Drug ID BADD_D00142
Description Anastrozole is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor (AI), similar to [letrozole], used to decrease circulating estrogen levels in the treatment of postmenopausal women with estrogen-responsive breast cancer.[L8863] Anastrozole is also related to [exemestane], a steroidal AI, but its non-steroidal nature provides stark advantages including a lack of steroid-associated adverse effects such as weight gain and acne.[A186865] Aromatase inhibitors, including anastrozole, have become endocrine drugs of choice in the treatment of postmenopausal breast cancer due to a more favourable efficacy and adverse effect profile as compared to earlier estrogen receptor modulators such as [tamoxifen].[A186877,A186955] Anastrozole was first approved for use in the United States in 1995.[L8863]
Indications and Usage Anastrozole is indicated as adjunct therapy in the treatment of hormone receptor-positive early breast cancer in postmenopausal women, and as a first-line treatment for hormone receptor-positive (or hormone receptor-unknown) locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer in postmenopausal women.[L8863] It may also be used in the treatment of advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women who experience disease progression despite treatment with [tamoxifen].[L8866,L8863]
