Question: Hi Doctor,

My mother had cancer last year. Now she has gone thru all chemos and radiations.

Doctor has prescribed her one medicine which she need to take one pill per day. The name of the medicine is LETROZ. Attached the pic.

We got know about another medicine with same salt which is leas costly. The name of the medicine is FEMPRO.

Can you suggest if she can consume FEMPRO as a substitute and does that medicine is equally effective.

If not, Can you suggest if she can consume some alternative medicine.

We are thankful for all you do for us.
