In brief: "anti-estrogens"

Both tamoxifen and Femara (letrozole) are drugs used to treat patients with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer.
Each drug affects breast cancer cells through a slightly different mechanism of action. Tamoxifen can be used for all women whereas Femara (letrozole) is only used after menopause.
