Aromasin is a very powerful prescription medication that is used to treat many different kinds of cancer in adults. Specifically, it is used for:
Aromasin has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of pre-neoplastic breast cancers in women who have gone through menopause. This medication has also been approved for the treatment of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), benign prostatic hyperplasia in men, and squamous cell carcinoma in situ (SCCA), also in men. Aromasin has also been shown to benefit women with endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and leiomyosarcomas. This article will discuss the common side effects of taking aromasin.
Like any prescription medication, when you take aromasin you should know what you are getting into and be sure to follow the dosing instructions carefully. Aromasin needs to be taken exactly as directed every time or you can have unpleasant and dangerous side effects. For example, if you take aromasin with progesterone, which is often prescribed when taking estrogen, you can develop a condition known as “coxaginous” – which means your body will retain too much water, which can cause fluid retention, swelling, and possibly even a form of kidney stones.
Common symptoms include dizziness, fainting, increased urination, increased blood pressure, decreased vision, fast heart rate, restlessness, depression, mood swings, and anxiety. If you experience any of these symptoms while taking aromasin, contact your doctor immediately and tell him or her about your symptoms. The dosage of the medication may be adjusted without causing any problem, but you should not increase the dosage without talking to your doctor first. In some cases, if your cancer Aromasin is in early remission, your doctor will place you on a course of methotrexate, which stops the growth of new cells in cancer patients. This type of treatment is usually reserved for advanced cancers where no other treatment is effective. Another type of aromatherapy that your doctor may recommend is called photodynamic therapy, which uses sunlight to promote healing.
The combination of aromasin, exemestane, and photodynamic therapy has been shown in clinical trials to be highly effective in reducing breast cancer risk. The combination has also been found to be more effective than any of these individually when used in the early to mid stages of breast cancer. Many women who have used this combination have found that the treatment is not only effective at reducing breast size, it is also effective in preserving breast function, such as breast relaxation and mammulation. You should talk to your doctor about taking tamoxifen, an approved aromatherapy treatment for breast cancer, if you would like to use aromasin. Tamoxifen will not prevent the growth of new tumors, but it will slow the growth of existing tumors.
As with any medication or treatment, always talk to your doctor and be honest about your health status. Some studies show that aromasin has very few side effects, while other studies show that aromasin can cause certain health problems, such as liver damage, jaundice, and hypoglycemia. In order to protect yourself, you should ask your doctor about the possible side effects of aromasin and whether or not you should use it when you are considered to be in a high-risk subtype for breast cancer. Your doctor will be able to tell you whether or not you are at risk for taking tamoxifen, and how much of the tablet should you take each day, as well as what the possible side effects are. Tamoxifen is typically administered on an weekly basis, with a break of two weeks, until your gynecological cancer has grown large enough to require hormone replacement therapy.
