I took Casodex for only 3 months, and have been off it for 2 months but still am experiencing breasted soreness.
30 Jun 2012
I take Casodex 50 mg every day for the last five years. Started with one month on and 3 months off. It didn't work. Then the doctor changed it to every day, but I go back every three month for a PSa. Has been very low for five years. Yes, it did bother my breast for almost a year, but after that my breast are never sore. I don't like taking it of course, I'm turning 84 soon and I'm still alive. At the beginning of the medicine the doctor said, it works great in some men. Better than taking hormone shots, which I chose not to do.
PS: I had seeds and radiation in march 2001. Did watchful waiting. It went up to high. Psa 26.0 Cannot not do anything else but Casodex. My psa curently is 1.20. It's been very low for five years. I'm shooting for age 96. Any further question please email me. Put CASODEX in the subject.
