Flutamide

Flutamide and Prostate Cancer

Flutamide is used to help with treating prostate cancer. This drug is used in conjunction with LHRH (Luteinizing Hormone Releasing Hormone). It is believed that Flutamide is able to work because it blocks the production of a male hormone called Androgen. As a result the cancer cells are isolated and they canít continue to spread or multiply.

Flutamide Dosage

Flutamide is offered in a capsule form. The doctor will be very specific about the regimen of Flutamide to be taken. This is a medication for daily use and a patient shouldnít skip doses. Some men will take one dose per day and others may take two or three. A lower dose will be given initially and then increased if there is a need to do so.

Flutamide Precautions

It is very important to tell the doctor about any types of allergies to medications. It is also necessary to disclose the use of medications, over the counter products, and herbal supplements. Flutamide may not work as it should when combined with certain products that fall into those various categories.

Not all males that have prostate cancer can use Flutamide due to other health concerns that they have. This includes the use of tobacco products due to the aniline in them, liver problems, blood disorders, and glucose deficiencies. There is a risk of liver problems that can develop so regular blood tests need to be routinely done while taking Flutamide to identify them early.

Flutamide Side Effects

There are a variety of different side effects that people have experienced with the use of Flutamide. They include dark colored stools, dark colored urine, loss of appetite, headaches, nausea, constipation, tenderness in the abdominal area, fatigue, and yellowing of the skin. Some males have experienced swelling and tenderness around the breast area.

If any serious side effects are noted a person should seek immediate medical attention. This includes hallucinations, trouble breathing, problems swallowing, the inability to urinate, and changes in heart rate.
