FAQs

Q. Why have I been prescribed Sureher-L Tablet?

Sureher-L Tablet 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.

Q. How does Sureher-L Tablet work?

Sureher-L Tablet 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 Sureher-L Tablet?

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 Sureher-L Tablet till the tumor shows progression. In cases where Sureher-L Tablet 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 Sureher-L Tablet followed by 3 years of tamoxifen.

Q. If I am taking irbesartan to control my blood pressure, can I take Sureher-L Tablet?

Q. My friend who is taking Sureher-L Tablet often sweats a lot. Is it because of Sureher-L Tablet?

This could be a sign of hot flushes which is a very common side effect of Sureher-L Tablet. It happens due to decreased estrogen levels. The frequency of hot flushes reduces once your body adjusts to Sureher-L Tablet. 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. Does Sureher-L Tablet cause bone loss?

As per the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Sureher-L Tablet is restricted for use in induction of ovulation in anovulatory infertility.
