Lactose free anasrozol

Hi I wondered if there was a lactose free version or preparation Anastrozol  or one similar as my consultant has asked me to start it but they are having trouble locating anything lactose free . 

  • Hello and thank you for your post,

    Lactose is present in many different types of medication. I am afraid that I do not know if there is a version of anastrozole that does not contain lactose. 

    The best thing to do is to discuss this with your GP or your local pharmacist, asking if there is a different variety or preparation of the drug.

    I am sorry I cannot help you much further about this.

    You may find it helpful to talk things through with one of the nurses on our helpline.  The number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

    Take care,
