Review by Kent's (taken for 1 to 2 years):
Have taken Zytiga for a year now, one pill each morning with light breakfast since I have difficulty swallowing pill with just water. PSA has dropped from 32 to 4 and has stayed there over the year, only side effect is slight diarrhea.

Review by amsail (taken for 1 to 6 months):
On Zytiga for 6 months no side effects so far PSA went from 27 to 3 and most of all I feel so much better than I have for past 2 years. Now I have energy to get out and work and I am slowly losing weight, my blood sugar has trended slightly down as well.

Review by glasshalffull (taken for 1 to 6 months):
One month later- PSA is 0.16! Sure, it's not a cure bit it's a nice respite from PSA anxiety. Liver tests all well.

Review by glasshalffull:
PSA dropped from 7.46 to 0.34 in 30 days. Leg cramps occasional but no fun. Critical to take Zytiga/prednisone exactly as prescribed.

Review by Anonymous:
PSA 28 to 4 in one week. Fatigue only side effect. Prednisone effect- no pain in bad knee(which has nothing to do with prostate cancer).
