I am on Exemestane 25mg 1 daily - I have sinusitis but am worried to take over the counter treatments - which one can I get that does not interact with my treatment. Hope you can help.



  • Hi Johanna,

    Thanks for getting in touch. My name is Sarah and I’m one of the nurses on the Macmillan Support Line.

    I’m sorry to hear you have sinusitis, you have done the right thing to reach out before taking anything other than what has been prescribed either by your GP or hospital consultant.

    Unfortunately the nurses on the support line are not prescribing nurses, so we are unable to advise on which is the best treatment for you.

    The best thing to do is speak with your local pharmacist. They will be aware of medications that will stop the Letrozole working as well and may be able to advise on a suitable product. However, if there are any queries they may suggest speaking with your breast care nurse at the hospital.

    I hope this information is helpful, but if there is anything else we can help you with please don’t hesitate to get back in touch.

    Take care and best wishes,

    Sarah (Cancer Information Nurse Specialist)
