Anastrozole is in a class of drugs known as non-steroidal aromatase inhibitors. It decreases the amount of estrogen the body makes. This can slow or stop the growth of many types of breast cancer cells that need estrogen to grow. The length of treatment depends on the types of drugs you are taking, how well your body responds to them, and the type of cancer you have.
Anastrozole is usually taken once a day with or without food. Take anastrozole at around the same time every day.

It inhibits the enzyme aromatase, which is responsible for converting androgens (produced by women in the adrenal glands) to estrogens.
