What's the Precautions when taking Bicalutamide?
Asked by Ashlyn Vanderwyk 3 months ago.
Bicalutamide can cause severe liver damage in a few people. Your doctor will likely check your blood so that if this happens, it can be found early. Call your doctor right away if you notice nausea, vomiting, fatigue, poor appetite, dark urine, yellowing skin or eyes, or tenderness under the right side of the rib cage. It is important to keep taking this drug, even if you feel well. If you are bothered by side effects, talk to your doctor or nurse to find out if the problems are serious. Many side effects can be managed with help from your doctor. Answered by Melodie Torrain 3 months ago.

If you are in the VA system and see any of their doctors, he can tell you. You must go to the VA and get an ID card to get into the system. If you are not a disabled vet (have some certain % of disability) it may take you awhile to get in to see the doctor.

I am 69. Was misdiagnosed to have prostate cancer and given homones -fosfestrol and bicalutamide- for 3 weeks.?
The aim was to medically castrate me.What antidote, please? My breasts are swollen and nipples sore! MRI test indicate I had BHP (thank heavens!) and have done prostatetomy in January.
Asked by Britteny Conteras 3 months ago.
You don't explain how you were diagnosed or how you came to find out is was a mistake. My understanding is that an MRI is not 100%. Most rely on a biopsy. It is also my understanding that the hormones are not permanent. Answered by Lea Porchia 3 months ago.

Split people in two groups of Casodex resistant treatment men (double -blind cross-over study) 50% get Casodex 50 mg ( BICALUTAMIDE 50 MG ) 1 tablet daily + 1 placebo tablet Casodex is an anti testosterone agent. 50% get Casodex 50 mg 1 tablet daily + 1 Tamoxifen 20 mg tablet Tamoxifen is an estrogen receptor inhibitor Compare the results of tumor growth over 1 year's time then reverse the groups without the physician or the patient knowing if they are receiving tamoxifen or the placebo tamxoifen then compare tumor growth results again.
