Aromasin (Exemestane) – Uses, Dosage, Side Effects and More

What Is Aromasin?

Aromasin is a prescription medication that contains the active ingredient exemestane. It belongs to a family of drugs called aromatase inhibitors, a type of hormone therapy or endocrine therapy. Doctors typically prescribe aromasin for treating some forms of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. The drug works by lowering estrogen levels in the body. Since many cancer cells multiply in response to estrogen, this effect helps inhibits the growth of a cancer tumor. You can purchase aromasin in the tablet form. This medication may be taken alone or with other drugs, so it is important to follow your doctor’s instruction. [1]
