As you know Letrozole is the generic for Femara. Would taking the brand name Femara make a difference? I am taking Letrozole for Breast Cancer. I have been cancer free for 14 years. I continue to take letrozole as a prevtative for a reoccurance.

Thanks
Yes generic of femara is latrozole and same.
Some of the side effects of latrozole may occur after long term use which Di not require any medical attention urgently and will pass away spontaneously. Hair loss is such a side effect of letrozole. So I think you wait and observe for few months to see the recovery.If no improve you should consult your health provider.
Thank you
