Arimidex is used for:
Treating certain types of breast cancer in women who have been through menopause, including women with disease progression after tamoxifen therapy. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor. It works by lowering blood estradiol concentrations, which may decrease the size and growth of the tumor.
Do NOT use Arimidex if:
you are allergic to any ingredient in Arimidex
you have not gone through menopause
you are pregnant or may become pregnant
the patient is a man or a child
you are taking estrogen-containing products (eg, certain birth control pills or hormone replacement therapies) or tamoxifen
Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Approved Uses for ARIMIDEX
ARIMIDEX is approved for adjuvant treatment (treatment following surgery with or without radiation) of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive early breast cancer.
ARIMIDEX is approved for the initial treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor-unknown locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer and for the treatment of postmenopausal women with advanced breast cancer that has progressed following treatment with tamoxifen. Patients with hormone receptor-negative disease and patients who did not previously respond to tamoxifen therapy rarely responded to ARIMIDEX.
This medication is used to treat breast cancer in women who have gone through "the change of life" (menopause). Anastro Zoles works by lowering estrogen hormone levels to help shrink tumors and slow their growth.
