How to Take AROMASIN® (exemestane tablets)

How should I take AROMASIN?

  • Take AROMASIN exactly as your doctor tells you
  • Take AROMASIN 1 time each day after a meal
  • If you take too much AROMASIN, call your doctor right away or go to nearest hospital emergency room

Can AROMASIN be taken with other medicines?

You should always talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking other medications. Do not take AROMASIN with those that contain estrogen. There are also drugs and supplements, such as St. John’s wort, that can change the way AROMASIN works in your body.

Can AROMASIN be taken during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

AROMASIN is not indicated for the treatment of breast cancer in premenopausal women (are still having menstrual periods). If you become pregnant while taking AROMASIN, talk to your doctor immediately to learn about the potential risks to the baby. Taking AROMASIN during pregnancy or within 1 month of becoming pregnant can harm your unborn baby. Use effective birth control (contraceptive) during treatment with AROMASIN and for 1 month after your last dose of AROMASIN.
Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if AROMASIN passes into your breast milk. Do not breast-feed during treatment with AROMASIN and 1 month after your last dose of AROMASIN.

If you are not sure if AROMASIN is right for you, talk to your doctor. Together you can decide on the best treatment plan for you.
