Generic Arimidex (Anastrozole 1 mg) guide:
What is the medication marketed as Arimidex?
The brand name Arimidex is registered for a medication based on Anastrozole by a pharmaceutical company that produces and markets this preparation. However, it I also can and is produced by other pharmaceutical companies but is sold under different brand names.
Anastrozole, the active substance of the medication, was first discovered in 1987 and used for the treatment of cancer patients in 1995. The medication is not used as a single treatment. It is used as an adjuvant therapy, i.e. an addition to the main treatment that usually accompanies surgery for tumor removal, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and radiotherapy. The use of adjuvant medications increases the chances of getting rid of the disease at all or prevention of relapses.
The exclusive patent owned by the inventor for the production of the preparations based on Anastrozole had already expired that makes it possible for other pharmaceutical companies to use the same formula. These medications are cheaper than the branded and widely-known medication and can be found if instead of the branded medication you look for Generic Arimidex. At our online pharmacy, you can buy Arimidex analog made by the reputable and well-known pharmaceutical company and be sure that it has the same efficacy as the branded medication.
The preparation is used for the treatment of early hormone-dependent mammary gland cancer in women who reached menopause and of metastasized mammary gland cancer in postmenopausal women. The medication is effective namely in the tumors that are proven to be hormone-dependent, i.e. that grow in elevated levels of female sex hormones which suppression can increase the chances of complete cancer elimination. Androstenedione, the main source of circulating estrogens in postmenopausal women, in peripheral tissues is converted to estrone, and then to estradiol. This process occurs with the participation of the aromatase enzyme. The mechanism of action of Anastrozole is explained by the inhibition of aromatase, which leads to a decrease in the amount of estradiol. When Anastrozole is treated at the recommended dose of 1 mg per day, the level of estradiol is reduced by 70% within 24 hours, by 80% within 14 days. Suppression of serum estradiol levels is maintained for 6 days after discontinuation of daily intake of 1 g of Anastrozole. Reducing the level of circulating estradiol has a therapeutic effect in breast tumors in postmenopausal women.
