Ach Bicalutamide 

Indication

Bicalutamide belongs to a group of medications known as nonsteroidal antiandrogens. Nonsteroidal antiandrogens such as bicalutamide block the effect of the male hormone testosterone in the body.

Bicalutamide is used in combination with another treatment that reduces the amount of testosterone in the body (either with medications called luteinizing hormone releasing hormone [LHRH] analogues or with surgery to remove the testicles) to treat late stage (metastatic) Prostate Cancer.

Ach Bicalutamide may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Ach Bicalutamide may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Ach Bicalutamide may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Ach Bicalutamide for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Ach Bicalutamide, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Ach Bicalutamide without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Ach Bicalutamide to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Ach Bicalutamide if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Ach Bicalutamide 

Dosage

The recommended dose for bicalutamide is one 50 mg tablet taken once daily at approximately the same time each day.

Bicalutamide may be taken with or without food. This treatment should be started at the same time as treatment with an LHRH analogue (e.g., Goserelin), or after surgical removal of the testicles.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
