Femara (Letrozole) 2.5mg is approved for the treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive early stage breast cancer. Femara is a form of hormone therapy known as an aromatase inhibitor, which works by reducing the amount of estrogen produced in the bodies of postmenopausal women. While tamoxifen prevents estrogen from being used as fuel to help the cancer grow, Femara seeks to prevent cancer cells from developing by starving them of estrogen, thus denying them the chance to grow or spread.
