Aromex Tablets (Exemestane) - Product Information
Aromex tablets (Generic Aromasin) containing Exemestane act as steroidal inhibitors of the enzyme aromatase, which controls the conversion of testosterone to esterone (E1) and androstenedione to estradiol (E2). This type of inhibition by Exemestane obstructs the synthesis of estrogen hormone in postmenopausal women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Aromex Mechanism of Action - How Does Exemestane Work?
Exemestane (Generic Aromasin tablets) acts as an aromatase inhibitor. The enzyme aromatase is responsible for the conversion of androgens (hormones produced by adrenal glands) such as testosterone and androstenedione into estrogens. Certain tumors require estrogen for their growth and survival.
Exemestane tablets lower the blood levels of estrogen in the body thus starving the tumors of estrogen. Estrogen deficiency will prevent the growth of estrogen dependent tumors and they will eventually shrink in size.
Bodybuilders use Exemestane tablets to minimize the undesirable effects of estrogen that are produced as by-products toward the end of a steroid cycle. By blocking the production of estrogen, bodybuilders' can minimize the risk of side effects of steroid cycle such as gynecomastia.
