Dear Steven

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

Aromatese inhibitors prevents conversion of androstenedione to estrone and estradiol in peripheral tissues. It therefore increases the levels of androstenedione (which is an anabolic steriod). This drug is often used when patients are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Side effects include hot flashes, arthralgia, athenia (mood changes), nausea, vomitting, depression, rash, headaches, back pain, edema, constipation, diarrhea, dyspepsia.

Kind regards
