You may choose to take FEMARA with a meal to avoid an upset stomach or without one. It is very important that you complete the dosage schedule and do not interrupt it in between without seeking prior consultation from your doctor. Taking your medication at the same time each day is a tried and tested method to avoid missing any doses. Drug Class and Mechanism FEMARA falls under oral, anti-estrogen drug and it works by inhibiting the enzyme in the adrenal glands (aromatase) that produces the estrogens, estradiol and estrone. Missed Dose Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule. Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects. Storage Store FEMARA at room temperature between 59 and 86 degrees F(15-30 degrees C).
