Buy Casodex brand or generic Bicalutamide prescription drug from Canada
Why is Casodex prescribed?
Bicalutamide (Casodex) is prescribed in combination with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist for the treatment of prostate cancer that has metastasized or spread to other parts of the body. It should not be taken on its own or with other medications.
What does it do?
In cancer, abnormal cells in the body develop and grow uncontrollably and are able to destroy normal cells. Prostate cancer is a type of cancer in males affecting the prostate (a gland that produces semen) and can cause signs and symptoms such as blood in semen, pelvic discomfort, and problems during urination.
Casodex belongs to a drug class called non-steroidal anti-androgens and it works by inhibiting the activity of androgens (sex hormones) to stop cancer cells from growing and spreading to other parts of the body.
How should I take it?
Casodex and its generic equivalents are currently available in 50mg and 150mg tablets. Each tablet should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Casodex?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Casodex or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Consult your doctor for effective methods of birth control. If a woman is exposed to Casodex through a male partner and becomes pregnant, it may cause harm to the fetus. Inform your doctor immediately if your partner becomes pregnant.
Casodex should only be taken by men and should never be taken by women or children.
