Questions Related to Fertolet

This query is for my mother. She was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 1 a couple of years back. It was thus treated with surgery followed by radiology. The doctor has since put her on anastrozole 1mg tablet daily for 5 years. She has been taking altraz 1mg by alkem laboratories since inception but now we have found a same salt medicine named elinal 1mg by emcure pharmaceuticals with same composition. Is elinal an equally effective medicine and can be taken in lieu of altraz? Reason for switching: elinal costs 80% less than altraz.
Dr. Megha Tuli
Hi PATIENT understand your concern. Emcee is a very good brand too. There is technically no difference in the two medicines. However I would suggest you verify with your treating doctor in this case because in case later something goes wrong in future, your doctor will only blame you that you checnged the medicine without consulting him and that is reason the patient has deteriorated. Cancer is known to be notorious. I have myself lost 2 very close family members to breast cancer. Do not take me wrong. I'm only asking you to verify with your doctor so that in future you face no problems in this account.
I had a 1-2 Stage breast cancer and mastectomy was done for left breast in 2011. Earlier I was taking Tamoxifen Citrate 20mg. Now, prescribed Altraz 1mg. Which is better and can I continue with Tamoxifen as Altraz is too costly.

उपभोक्ता का फीडबैक


Q. Why have I been prescribed Fertolet?

Fertolet is an aromatase inhibitor. यह आम तौर पर उन महिलाओं में स्तन कैंसर का इलाज करने के लिए निर्धारित किया जाता है जिनके पास अब पीरियड नहीं हैं, या तो रजोनिवृत्ति के बाद या सर्जरी या कीमोथेरेपी के बाद. इसका उपयोग एनोव्यूलेशन के कारण होने वाले बांझपन के इलाज के लिए भी किया जाता है (मासिक धर्म के दौरान अंडाशय से अंडा सेल नहीं निकलता है).

Q. How does Fertolet work?

Fertolet is also known as an anti-estrogen drug. इसे इसलिए कहा जाता है क्योंकि यह आपके शरीर में एस्ट्रोजेन के उत्पादन को कम करके एंजाइम एरोमाटेज को अवरुद्ध करता है, जो एस्ट्रोजेन के उत्पादन के लिए जिम्मेदार है. एस्ट्रोजन आपके शरीर में कुछ प्रकार के स्तन कैंसर के उत्पादन को उत्तेजित करता है. इन कैंसर को "एस्ट्रोजन पर निर्भर कैंसर" कहा जाता है. एस्ट्रोजन का उत्पादन कम करने से कैंसर को बढ़ने से रोका जा सकता है.

प्रश्न. For how long should I take Fertolet?

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

प्रश्न. If I am taking irbesartan to control my blood pressure, can I take Fertolet?

हां, इर्बेसैर्टैन को फेर्टोलेट के साथ लिया जा सकता है. However, be careful and keep a regular check on your blood pressure since Fertolet may increase your blood pressure. यदि आपको अपने रक्तचाप को नियंत्रित करने में समस्या है, तो अपने चिकित्सक से परामर्श करें.

Q. Does Fertolet affect vision?

Although it is very uncommon but Fertolet may cause cataract. इसलिए, यदि आपको धुंधली दृष्टि या आंखों में जलन का अनुभव होता है, तो तुरंत अपने चिकित्सक से परामर्श करें.

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

This could be a sign of hot flushes which is a very common side effect of Fertolet. यह एस्ट्रोजन के स्तर में कमी के कारण होता है. The frequency of hot flushes reduces once your body adjusts to Fertolet. हालांकि, कुछ लोगों में उपचार के दौरान फ्लश और पसीना जारी रह सकता है और उपचार समाप्त होने के कुछ महीने बाद बंद हो जाता है. आप अपने चिकित्सक से परामर्श कर सकते हैं जो आपको एक उपाय प्रदान करेगा यदि यह बहुत परेशान है.

Q. What are the serious side effects of Fertolet?

गंभीर दुष्प्रभाव सभी में नहीं होते हैं और बहुत कम लोग उन्हें अनुभव करते हैं. The serious side effects of Fertolet include stroke, angina, heart attack, blood clotting, cataract, osteoporosis and severe skin reactions.
