Indications & Dosage of Femara

Femara is administered for treatment of breast cancer especially in postmenopausal women.

This helps in slowing the growth of specific breast tumors, which rely completely on estrogen to enable their growth process in the human body.

The recommended dosage is one Femara 2.5 mg tablet, once a day with or without food and should be taken orally with a glass of water. The duration of treatment varies from one patient to another although the planned duration is for 5 years. The median duration of treatment observed currently by doctors across the world is 60 months.

The recommended dosage for such patients is one Femara 2.5 mg tablet once in two days.
