Letrozole - Overview
Letrozole is a medication sometimes prescribed for some hormonally-responsive cancers and used by some practitioners in an off-label manner for certain women with infertility. Women who might need a letrozole medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe letrozole, including letrozole 2.5 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Letrozole Used For?
Letrozole is marketed in the United States as a generic medication and under the brand name Femara. Letrozole is sometimes prescribed as an adjuvant therapy to postmenopausal women with certain types of cancer. Letrozole, like Arimidex, belongs to a class of medications known as aromatase inhibitors. Letrozole is thought to work by competitively inhibiting enzymes known as aromatase enzymes which cause the conversion of androgens to estrogens. Letrozole can increase LH levels in the serum and reduce the weight of the uterus. Ultimately, letrozole reduces the synthesis of estrogen and reduces estradiol levels. Letrozole is also sometimes prescribed off-label, including as letrozole for fertility and letrozole for PCOS, but it has not official indication for those conditions at this time.
Letrozole - Dosage and Cost
Letrozole is sometimes prescribed at an initial dose of letrozole 2.5 mg tablet once per day although the ultimate dose prescribed depends on the judgement of the medical provider and the health needs of the patient. Letrozole can be taken with or without food. Letrozole has a terminal elimination half-life of about 48 hours and is largely excreted in the urine. Generic letrozole is considered affordable, costing approximately 40 cents per letrozole 2.5 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Additionally, letrozole coupons may be available online and some insurance plans may cover costs associated with a letrozole medication prescription. Branded letrozole tablets are expensive when not covered by insurance.
Can I Buy Letrozole Online?
One cannot just buy letrozole online in the United States as letrozole tablets require a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy. Because of this, letrozole OTC is not available, either. People who might need a letrozole tablet prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe letrozole, including letrozole 2.5 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
Letrozole - Side Effects
Letrozole can cause side effects and concerns should be discussed with a pharmacist and medical provider before using the medication. Side effects that may result from letrozole use include nausea, hot flashes, weight gain, edema, vomiting and dizziness. Letrozole can interact with other drugs and care should be taken when prescribed as part of a multidrug regimen. Letrozole and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to letrozole or similar drugs should not use the medication.
