Vsebina pakiranja in dodatne informacije

1.

Kaj je zdravilo Letrozol Accord in za kaj ga uporabljamo

Kaj je zdravilo Letrozol Accord in kako deluje

Zdravilo Letrozol Accord vsebuje zdravilno učinkovino, ki jo imenujemo letrozol. Sodi v skupino

zdravil, ki jih imenujemo zaviralci aromataze, in je zdravilo za hormonsko ("endokrino") zdravljenje

raka dojke. Pogosto estrogeni, to so ženski spolni hormoni, spodbujajo rast raka dojke. Zdravilo

Letrozol Accord zmanjšuje količino estrogenov tako, da zavira encim ("aromatazo"), ki sodeluje pri

nastajanju estrogenov, s tem pa zavira tudi rast raka dojke, ki za svojo rast potrebuje estrogene.

Posledica tega je, da tumorske celice upočasnijo ali ustavijo svoje razmnoževanje in/ali širjenje po

drugih delih telesa.

Za kaj uporabljamo zdravilo Letrozol Accord

Zdravilo Letrozol Accord uporabljamo za zdravljenje raka dojke pri ženskah, ki so že v obdobju po

menopavzi, kar pomeni, da nimajo več menstrualnih krvavitev.

Zdravilo uporabljamo za preprečevanje ponovitve raka. Lahko ga uporabljamo kot prvo zdravilo pred

operacijo raka dojke, če takojšnja operacija ni primerna, lahko kot prvo zdravilo po operaciji raka

dojke ali pa po petletnem zdravljenju s tamoksifenom. Zdravilo Letrozol Accord uporabljamo tudi za

preprečevanje širjenja raka v druge dele telesa pri bolnicah z napredovalim rakom dojke.

Če vas zanima, kako zdravilo Letrozol Accord deluje ali zakaj so vam predpisali to zdravilo, se obrnite

na svojega zdravnika.

Če karkoli od navedenega velja za vas, povejte svojemu zdravniku. Zdravnik bo med vašim

začeli jemati katero koli drugo zdravilo, vključno s tistimi, ki ste jih dobili brez recepta.

Nosečnost in dojenje

Zdravilo Letrozol Accord smete jemati le, če ste imeli menopavzo (zadnjo menstrualno

krvavitev). Vsekakor se z zdravnikom pogovorite o uporabi učinkovite kontracepcije, saj sicer

še vedno obstaja možnost, da bi zanosili v času zdravljenja z zdravilom Letrozol Accord.

Če ste noseči ali dojite, ne smete jemati zdravila Letrozol Accord, saj bi lahko škodilo vašemu

otroku.

Vpliv na sposobnost upravljanja vozil in strojev

3.

Kako jemati zdravilo Letrozol Accord

Pri jemanju tega zdravila natančno upoštevajte navodila svojega zdravnika ali farmacevta. Če ste

negotovi, se posvetujte s svojim zdravnikom ali s farmacevtom.

Običajen odmerek je ena tableta zdravila Letrozol Accord, ki jo vzamete enkrat na dan. Vzemite

zdravilo Letrozol Accord vsak dan ob istem času, da se boste laže spomnili, kdaj morate vzeti tableto.

Pregledi v času zdravljenja z zdravilom Letrozol Accord

Zdravilo Letrozol Accord smete jemati samo pod skrbnim zdravniškim nadzorom. Vaš zdravnik vas

bo redno pregledoval, da bi ugotovil, ali zdravljenje dosega želeni učinek.

JAZMP-IB/006, T-05.05.2014

Zdravilo Letrozol Accord lahko zaradi zmanjševanja količine estrogenov v telesu povzroča redčenje

kostnine oziroma izgubljanje kostne mase (osteoporozo). Zdravnik se bo morda odločil za merjenje

vaše kostne gostote (s čimer je mogoče spremljati stanje osteoporoze) pred in med zdravljenjem, pa

tudi po zaključku zdravljenja.

Če ste vzeli večji odmerek zdravila Letrozol Accord, kot bi smeli

Če ste vzeli preveč tzdravila Letrozol Accord, ali je kdo drug pomotoma vzel vaše tablete, se takoj

posvetujete s svojim zdravnikom ali pokličite v bolnišnico. Osebju pokažite škatlico s tabletami.

Morda boste potrebovali zdravniško oskrbo

Če ste pozabili vzeti zdravilo Letrozol Accord

Če je že skoraj čas za naslednji odmerek (in je do naslednjega odmerjanja na primer še 2 do 3

ure), izpuščeni odmerek preskočite in vzemite naslednji odmerek, kot ste načrtovali.

Sicer vzemite pozabljeni odmerek takoj, ko se spomnite, nato pa vzemite naslednjo tableto kot

običajno.

Ne vzemite dvojnega odmerka, če ste pozabili vzeti prejšnji odmerek.

Če ste prenehali jemati zdravilo Letrozol Accord

Ne prenehajte jemati zdravila Letrozol Accord, če vam tega ni naročil zdravnik. Glejte tudi zgornje
