Letrozol is classified as an anti-estrogen and it belongs to the family of aromatase inhibitors. Just like other aromatase inhibitors, Letrozol inhibits the action of the enzyme Aromatase which aromatises Anabolic Androgenic Steroids into estrogens. It is necessary to avoid testosterone-estrogenic conversion in order to prevent the undesirable side effects caused by estrogen. Taking Letrozole helps to prevent the estrogenic side effects such as gynecomastia, weight gain, alopecia, water retention, acne, etc.
Taking Letrozol can also help to speed up recovery as it reduces the depression of the axis of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testicles by estrogen. Under normal doses, Letrozol is a very safe drug. However, if the dosage is exceeded, undesirable side effects like painful joints, high cholesterol levels, depression, poor sexual libido, and reduced bone strength can be experienced.
