Casodex 50mg

Casodex is an anti-andorgen. It blocks some of the actions that would typically occur by the male hormones. Casodex is rarely given alone. Instead, it is used in conjunction with at least one other type of medication. Usually, it is given with LHRH so that the testicles arenít producing testosterone.

What is Casodex Used for?

The most common use of Casodex is for the treatment of prostate cancer. Combined with other medications, it can be a very aggressive type of treatment. It is usually started at the same time as the other medications for the best results.

Casodex Dosage & Administration

Casodex is offered in 50 mg as well as in 150 mg. Most men are given the 50 mg dose at first to see how their body reacts to it and how it benefits them. If they need something more powerful then they will be given the higher dose.

For the best results, Casodex needs to be taken daily until your doctor tells you to stop taking it. Failure to take it daily can result in the prostate cancer progressing. It should be taken at the same time every day, and it can be taken with or without food.

Casodex Side Effects & Precautions

Women and children should never take Casodex. Women who are trying to become pregnant or who are pregnant shouldnít handle this medication. Women who are exposed to it during pregnancy increase the risk of the child being born with various birth defects.

The liver should be tested prior to taking Casodex. Those with liver problems arenít encouraged to take it. Regular testing of the liver throughout the duration of time that it is used is important.
