The treatment has worked in lowering my PSA, but I have developed breast tenderness and enlargement.

I have been on this medication for 18 months following orchiectomy. PSA still climbing, but slowed to some extent. Experiencing fatigue, no sex drive, and frequent urination, especially at night. Hot flashes occur with irregular occurrence and intensity.

Does what it says on the box. The main side effect is severe fatigue, I'm often so tired I can hardly move. Having said that, it's very effective, and certainly better than the alternative.

My husband has been on Casodex 50MG for almost a month and so far so good. Appears to have helped the pain he has experienced in his back and the only side effect appears to be that most foods have no taste.

Taking this medication since 6 months. This in combination with monthly Trelstar injections and radiation therapy. Headaches and "hot-flashes" have been the side-effects I have been dealing with.
