Frequently asked Questions about Caditraz

Question almost 5 years ago

Is Caditraz a steroid?

No, Caditraz is not a steroid. It contains letrozole which is a nonsteroidal competitive inhibitor of the aromatase enzyme. 

Question about 5 years ago

Does Caditraz cause weight fluctuation?

Dr. Faisal Mukhtar MBBS, PG Dip, DNB , Ophthalmology

Rarely, Caditraz causes weight fluctuation (weight gain or weight loss). However, the exact cause behind weight fluctuation is unknown but it is presumed that this occurs due to fluctuation in hormone levels in the body caused by this drug. If you experience any unusual sudden weight gain or loss after taking this drug, then consult it with your doctor without further delay.

Question over 5 years ago

How does Caditraz work?

Dr. Madhur Anand MBBS, MS , General Surgery

Caditraz contains letrozole that works in breast cancer by blocking an enzyme (aromatase) which prevents the conversion of androgens (androstenedione and testosterone) to estrogens (estrone and estradiol) due to this levels of estrogen hormones drop in the body. The decrease in hormone levels leads to a reduction in tumor mass or delays the progression of tumor growth in some women. For an ovulation (infertility), it is presumed that Caditraz works by increasing the sensitivity of ovary to follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) and also low level of estrogen hormones in the blood is detected by the brain which in turn increases the production of a follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) which causes induction of ovulation.

Question about 5 years ago

Does Caditraz cause acne?

Dr. Gaurav MBBS , General Physician

No, Caditraz does not cause acne. It has not been reported by the patients who are taking this drug till now. If you are experiencing acne after taking this drug then it might be due to some other medical condition and you are advised to discuss it with your doctor.
