Take Arimidex by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once a day. Use Arimidex regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Do not increase your dose or use Arimidex more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of serious side effects will increase. Since Arimidex can be absorbed through the skin and lungs and may harm an unborn baby, women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle Arimidex or breathe the dust from the tablets.
