Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Q: Can Femistra Tablets be used in men?

A: Femistra Tablet has been approved for use only in advanced breast cancer in post-menopausal women. However, various studies for using Anastrozole in older men with lower levels of testosterone are ongoing. Anastrozole has been found to improve Testosterone levels in adult males and help in increasing height in boys. Thus, studies on the use of Anastrozole to increase adult height in boys with early puberty are ongoing. Long-term efficacy and safety of the use of Anastrozole (and similar medicines) have not yet been established in males and their routine use is therefore not recommended.

Q: What is the ideal duration for Femistra therapy?

A: Approximately 5-years of therapy with the Femistra Tablet has been found to yield optimum results. However, the duration will depend on the response to treatment. Follow your doctor's instructions and do not stop taking this medicine on your own.
