Act Exemestane 

Indication

Exemestane belongs to the group of cancer-fighting medications known as antineoplastics. Exemestane is often used to treat breast cancers that depend on estrogen for growth and survival. It is used to treat Breast Cancer in women who are past Menopause and who are no longer responding to the beneficial effects of Tamoxifen, another antineoplastic medication. Exemestane may also be used to treat advanced breast cancer in post-menopausal women who have had the disease continue to grow, even after anti-estrogen treatment.

Exemestane fights cancer by attaching to and inactivating an enzyme called aromatase. This prevents the aromatase enzyme from supplying the estrogen that allows certain types of breast cancers to grow and survive.

Act Exemestane may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Act Exemestane may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Act Exemestane may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Act Exemestane for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Act Exemestane, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Act Exemestane without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Act Exemestane to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Act Exemestane if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Act Exemestane 

Dosage

The recommended dose of exemestane is 25 mg once daily, at the same time each day, taken after a meal.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.

If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
