Patient Information

BRUTRAX® (anastrozole) 1mg Tablets

What is the most important information I should know about BRUTRAX®?

BRUTRAX® may cause serious side effects including: heart disease. Women with early breast cancer, who have a history of blockage in their heart arteries (ischemic heart disease) and who take BRUTRAX®, may have an increase in symptoms of decreased blood flow to their heart compared to similar women who take tamoxifen.

Get medical help right away if you have new or worsening chest pain or shortness of breath during treatment with BRUTRAX®.

What is BRUTRAX®?

BRUTRAX® is a prescription medicine used in women after menopause (“the change of life”) for:
⇒   treatment of early breast cancer
         ♦   after surgery
         ♦   in women whose breast cancer is hormone receptor-positive
⇒   the first treatment of breast cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced) or has spread to        other parts of the body (metastatic), in women whose breast cancer is hormone receptor-positive or the hormone        receptors are not known.
⇒   treatment of advanced breast cancer, if the cancer has grown, or the disease has spread after tamoxifen therapy        BRUTRAX® does not work in women with
       breast cancer who have not gone through menopause (premenopausal women).

Who should not take BRUTRAX®?

Do not take BRUTRAX® if you:
•   Are pregnant or able to become pregnant. BRUTRAX® may harm your unborn baby. If you become pregnant while taking     BRUTRAX®, tell your doctor right away.
•   Have not gone through menopause (are premenopausal).
•   Have had severe allergic reaction to anastrozole or any of the ingredients in BRUTRAX®. See the end of this leaflet for a     complete list of ingredients in BRUTRAX®. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction to BRUTRAX® include: swelling of the     face, lips, tongue or throat, trouble breathing or swallowing, hives and itching.

What should I tell my doctor before taking BRUTRAX®?

Before you take BRUTRAX®, tell your doctor if you:

  • Have not gone through menopause. Talk to your doctor if you are not sure.
  • Have or had a heart problem.

  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if BRUTRAX® passes into breast milk. You and your doctor should decide if you will take BRUTRAX® or breastfeed. You should not do both.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your doctor if you take:

  • You should not take BRUTRAX® if you take tamoxifen. Taking BRUTRAX® with tamoxifen may lower the amount of BRUTRAX® in your blood and may cause BRUTRAX® not to work as well.
  • Medicines that contain estrogen. BRUTRAX® may not work if taken with any of these medicines:
    •   hormone replacement therapy
    •   birth control pills
    •   estrogen creams

  • Continue taking BRUTRAX® until your doctor tells you to stop.

  • If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next does, skip the missed dose. Take your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take two doses at the same time.
  • If you take too much BRUTRAX®, call your doctor or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away.

What are the possible side effects of BRUTRAX?

BRUTRAX may cause serious side effects including:

  • See “What is the most important information I should know about BRUTRAX?”

  • increased blood cholesterol (fat in the blood). Your doctor may do blood tests to check your cholesterol while you are taking BRUTRAX.
