Letrozole

I read an earlier blog from 2016 discussing the side effects of Letrozole.by Accord being a better choice with less side effects. I cannot locate anything by Accord. 

  • Hi mariberni,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us and welcome to our Online Community.

    There are many different drug companies that manufacture Letrozole. Some people find one brand better than another in terms of side effects. So, it’s often a bit of trial and error to find one that suits you.

    Accord Healthcare Ltd is one of the companies that supply Letrozole. However different pharmacies may stock the drug from one company only. I have contacted one of our Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacist today to check that there are currently no supply issues. Their store does stock the Accord brand but have suggested that you contact your local branch and ask who their supplier is before putting in your prescription. They have also said that your local pharmacist should be able to order that brand for you. 

    I see that you’ve already joined our very supportive breast cancer group and you’re talking to others about their experiences. That’s great to see as there is nothing quite like the support that you get from others who know what it’s like.

    Best wishes and take care.
