Exemestane Disease Interactions

There are 2 disease interactions with exemestane:


Exemestane (applies to exemestane) osteoporosis

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Reductions in bone mineral density (BMD) over time are seen with the use of exemestane. Women with osteoporosis or at risk of osteoporosis should have their BMD formally assessed by densitometry at treatment initiation. Monitoring for BMD loss is recommended, and treatment for it should be started as appropriate.


Exemestane (applies to exemestane) vitamin D deficiency

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Routine assessment of vitamin D levels prior to the start of aromatase inhibitor treatment should be performed, due to the high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in women with early breast cancer. Women with vitamin D deficiency should receive supplementation.
