The more you know, the more it will help you or someone else!  For me, my Ameridex 1 mg is working to take the estrogen out of my body, so my MASS will not have estrogen to feed on and get large.  This does not work for all types of BREAST CANCER.  Another helpful drug is:
aromacin ..Always refer to your DOCTOR FIRST!  HE KNOWS BEST!


Take Aromasin once a day with a meal. Try to take it at the same time each day, to maintain the drug at an even level in your system. If you miss a dose, don’t double up, just wait till the next day and resume your medication schedule. Do not take this drug if you are still having menstrual periods, or are pregnant. Ask your doctor if this drug will conflict with any other medications that you take regularly.

How Aromasin Works:

Many breast tumors are fueled by estrogen. Aromasin and tamoxifen are drugs that target estrogen, but work by different methods. Before menopause, your ovaries produce most of your estrogen. After menopause, the ovaries stop making estrogen, but your breast and fatty tissues use the enzyme aromatase to continue making this hormone. Aromasin blocks aromatase, preventing estrogen production and lowering your hormone levels up to 98 percent. If breast cancer cells are present in your system, they have much less chance to grow if they can’t get any estrogen.

Common Side Effects:

Aromasin may cause these side effects:
  • hot flashes
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • joint pain
  • insomnia
  • increased perspiration
Less common side effects (under five percent):
  • osteoporosis (bone thinning)
  • nausea
  • increased appetite
  • chest pain or discomfort
  • heart failure


The temporary side effects of Aromasin are much more tolerable when you know that your risk of recurrence is greatly reduced. Women who switched to Aromasin after two or three years of tamoxifen had significantly lower risk of recurrence that those who took a full five years of tamoxifen. In addition, with Aromasin your risk of a new cancer in the opposite breast is less than with tamoxifen alone.
