Pack: 3 strips of 10 tablets (25 mg/tab)
Aromex tablets (Generic Aromasin) containing Exemestane act as steroidal inhibitors of the enzyme aromatase, which controls the conversion of testosterone to esterone (E1) and androstenedione to estradiol (E2). This type of inhibition by Exemestane obstructs the synthesis of estrogen hormone in postmenopausal women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
Exemestane tablets (Aromex) are prescribed as oral therapy for breast tumors which are dependent on estrogen for their growth and survival in the body and in tumors where treatment with other anti-cancer drugs such as tamoxifen for two-three years has failed.
You should use Aromex exactly as recommended by your doctor. Your doctor may suggest a dosage of Aromex depending on your medical requirement, body weight, other medical conditions, and current medications. Aromex should be taken once a day with a glass of water, after a meal to avoid indigestion problems. Try to maintain a regular schedule for the medication such that you take Aromex at the same time every day, to get the maximum benefit of the medication.
Doctors usually recommend a dosage of a single Aromex once daily after a meal. Your doctor may alter the dosage of Aromex and dosage period depending on your response to treatment. The treatment with Aromex can be continued for a period of five years. You may need to monitor your health through frequent blood tests during the course of Aromex.
