Сasodex is a non-steroidal drug that suppress the activity of male hormones, used for the treatment of malign prostate gland tumor. Androgens stimulate the growing of prostate gland tissues, including the atypical cancer cells. Accumulating in the blood plasma and decreasing the androgen activity, the active substance of Сasodex called Bicatulamide, leads to the reduction, or regression of prostate gland tumor. Сasodex is prescribed for the treatment of different kinds of prostate gland oncologist: widespread, local and non-metastatic cancer. It is used both as a monotherapy and in the combination treatment (including after the surgical or chemical castration), alongside with radiotherapy and prostatectomy.
Сasodex is available in pills. The drug instruction contains relevant information on the schemes of use and dosages of the drug. Usually, the doctors prescribe 1 pill a day, as it accumulates in high concentration and slowly excretes from the body. Сasodex is contraindicated to the patients who take the drug that regulate the heart beat, women and children. Patients with severe live dysfunction must take this drug with caution. The reactions of individual intolerance to the drug components are possible. Possible side effects are: various digestive disorders; painfulness and swelling of mammal glands; “hot flushes” – the vegetative disorders of thermo-regulation, pressure and general health; cardiovascular and hematopoietic system disorders; shortness of breath and lung dysfunctions; disorders of carbohydrate metabolism, increased blood sugar, swellings and weight gain; allergic reactions – from urticaria to angioedema. These side effects are more frequent in elderly patients.
Casodex is a very powerful drug; therefore, self-medication is forbidden. If you or someone of your family was diagnosed with a serious disease, your main task is to find a competent and careful specialist who can provide adequate therapy. Feedbacks about the use of Casodex are left by the patients currently undergoing the course of treatment with this drug. No side effects of the drug were mentioned. Mostly, these reports contain the questions relating the possibility of simultaneous use of the other drugs (for example, diuretics and herbal infusions), duration of treatment with Casodex, etc.
Obviously, such medicines are required for the normalization of hormonal processes that accompany the growing of malign prostate gland tumor. The narrow-focused action allows to concentrate all the “power” of Casodex in the affected organ, minimizing the harm caused to the other organs and systems of the patient’s body.
