 4  Advanced prostate cancer I have had no side effects that I can contribute to Casodex since I am taking other medicines that might be causing the weakness and lack of energy. The other medicine, imipraine, seems to be the major cause of my weakness. I also had an orchiectomy (castration) and that didn't help either. All in all I praise the Lord that I am alive and can still get about. When I started taking casodex my PSA was 0.6. Now it is less than 0.2. I watch my liver "numbers" since I have also had hepititis B and have a core antibody resulting from that. So far so good. M 76 2 years

 4  prostate cancer ternderness of the nipples I had a 23 PSA & a 9 Gleason T3a--Score after LRP surgery and 60 days after surgery my PSA was 0.35 and should have been less then 0.20. I was put on 100 mg of casodex per day, after 30 days my PSA reading was <0.05 a very acceptable level. I am now on 50mg daily and should be taken off the medication in 6-9 months. I do recomend it. good luck. M 60 90 days

CASODEX  (BICALUTAMIDE):  Bicalutamide is used with another drug (LHRH-type such as leuprolide, goserelin) to treat prostate cancer. This medication works by blocking the action of male hormones in the prostate, slowing the growth of cancer cells. This medication should not be used in women and children.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
