he fundamental concept of the function of Exemestane is to inhibit the conversion of testosterone and other steroids to oestrogen. The latter is regarded as the hormone that causes severe side effects, especially in men.
Basically, oestrogen appears as the by-product of the use of testosterone as well as other oestrogenic steroids. The conversion is carried out by the Aromatase enzyme which leads to aromatization. Therefore, Aromatase inhibitors should be used in order to avoid the secretion of Aromatase enzyme. Exemestane (Aromasin) is definitely one of the most popular AIs.
Aromasin fulfills its function by binding itself to Aromatase and consequently disabling and destroying the enzyme.
So far, we are clear with the fundamental functions of Aromasin. However, side effects of using the drug do also exist.
The range of possible side effects is not that ample, but still they are quite detrimental. Here is the full list of expected side effects: fatigue, headaches, joint pain, depression, vomiting, high blood pressure. The latter, to be honest, is the most common side effects of using Exemestane.
12.5 mg Aromasin should be taken in during 7-14 days. Some may take 25 mg.
