Introduction

Induz Capsule helps treat breast cancer in post-menopausal women. It may be used alone or with other treatments, such as surgery or radiation. It can also be used in patients with advanced breast cancer to stop the tumor from spreading to other parts of the body.

Induz Capsule is also helpful in the treatment of infertility. It can be taken with or without food, but take it at about the same time to get the most benefit. The dose and frequency depend on what you are taking it for. Your doctor will decide how much you need to improve your symptoms. You should take this medicine for as long as it is prescribed.

This medicine's most common side effects include hot flashes, fatigue, increased sweating, and increased level of cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia). If these bother you or appear serious, let your doctor know. Your doctor may suggest ways to prevent or reduce these.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have ever had liver or kidney disease, or have a history of osteoporosis (thinning or wasting of bones).  Your doctor should also know about all other medicines you are taking as many of these may make this medicine less effective or change the way it works. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Your doctor may perform some blood tests to check for vitamin D level or bone density before and during treatment.

Uses of Induz Capsule

  • Treatment of Infertility due to anovulation

Benefits of Induz Capsule

In Treatment of Breast cancer

Induz Capsule relieves the symptoms of breast cancer such as breast lumps, bloody discharge from the nipple, or changes in the shape or texture of the breast. It works by altering the production of those hormones in the body that are essential for the growth and spread of breast cancer. It may also interact with other hormones or have a direct effect on cancer to stop its growth.

In Treatment of Infertility due to anovulation

Induz Capsule helps in the normal development of an egg in a woman's ovary (female reproductive organ) and stimulates the release of the egg during a process called ovulation. This helps to treat infertility in women. This increases the chance of a successful pregnancy. You should use the medicine as prescribed for it to be effective.

Side effects of Induz Capsule

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Induz

  • Fatigue
  • Hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol)
  • Increased sweating
  • Hot flashes

How to use Induz Capsule

Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Induz Capsule may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time.

How Induz Capsule works

Induz Capsule is an aromatase inhibitor. It works by decreasing the amount of estrogen (natural female hormone) produced in the body. This decrease in estrogen can slow down or stop the growth of some breast cancers that need estrogen to grow. In addition, it is also useful in infertility whereby it increases the release of certain hormones to stimulate the release of eggs from the ovaries.

FAQs

Q. Why have I been prescribed Induz Capsule?

Induz Capsule is an aromatase inhibitor. It is generally prescribed to treat breast cancer in women who no longer have periods, either due to menopause or after surgery or chemotherapy. It is also used to treat infertility caused due to anovulation (during menstrual cycle egg cell from ovaries is not released).

Q. How does Induz Capsule work?

Induz Capsule is also known as an anti-estrogen drug. It is called so because it acts by reducing the production of estrogen in your body by blocking the enzyme aromatase, which is responsible for the production of estrogen. Estrogen stimulates the production of certain types of breast cancer in your body. These cancers are called "estrogen-dependent cancers". Reducing the production of estrogen may prevent cancer from growing.

Q. For how long should I take Induz Capsule?

If the breast tumor is in the advanced stage or has spread to other parts of the body, it is recommended that you continue taking Induz Capsule till the tumor shows progression. In cases where Induz Capsule is given after tamoxifen (another anti-estrogen used for breast cancer) or surgery, it should be given for 5 years or until the tumor comes back, whichever is first. It can also be given as a sequential treatment; 2 years of Induz Capsule followed by 3 years of tamoxifen.

Q. If I am taking irbesartan to control my blood pressure, can I take Induz Capsule?

Yes, you can take irbesartan and Induz Capsule together. However, be careful and keep a regular check on your blood pressure since Induz Capsule may increase your blood pressure. Consult your doctor in case you have problems controlling your blood pressure.

Q. Does Induz Capsule affect vision?

Although it is very uncommon, Induz Capsule may cause a cataract. So, if you experience blurred vision or eye irritation, consult your doctor immediately.

Q. My friend who is taking Induz Capsule often sweats a lot. Is it because of Induz Capsule?

This could be a sign of hot flushes which is a very common side effect of Induz Capsule. It happens due to decreased estrogen levels. The frequency of hot flushes reduces once your body adjusts to Induz Capsule. However, in some people, the flushes and sweats may continue during the treatment and stop a few months after the treatment finishes. You can consult your doctor who will provide you a remedy if it is very bothersome.

Q. What are the serious side effects of Induz Capsule?

The serious side effects do not occur in everyone and very few people experience them. The serious side effects of Induz Capsule include stroke, angina, heart attack, blood clotting, cataract, osteoporosis, and severe skin reactions.
