Currently the alternatives to Femara (also known as letrozole) are Arimidex (anastrozole) and Aromasin (exemestane).
All 3 belong to a class of medications known as aromatase inhibitors and can help reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence. Another type of medication, tamoxifen, is known as a selective estrogen receptor modulator, or serm - it is primarily used in premenopapusal women.

In brief: Arimidex (anastrozole)
Femara belongs to a class of drugs called aromatase inhibitors and is good for hormone receptor breast cancer in post menopausal women.
Others in this category are Arimidex and faslodex (fulvestrant).
