Reviews for Zytiga to treat Prostate Cancer
"My dad has been taking zytiga for 6 weeks, PSA went from 31 to 37.8 in this period. I hope it will start to decrease soon! He's treating prostate cancer for 10 years, bone mets since 2013. No side effects from zytiga so far."

"My dad is 83 years old. He's been through Casodex and Tabi...fighting prostate cancer for nearly 19 years now. Bone metastases already started 3-4 months back. 2 months ago, started Zytiga 4 tabs with Prednisone. So far PSA is going up from 22 to 185 now. Doctor is advising to continue for another 30 days before giving up. Side effects (not sure ) include frequent nausea/vomiting. However, the pain on the back has been reduced."

"I have had lots of energy and felt good until recently. My PSA initially went from 66 to 0.1, after 20 months it has started to rise, now it is 0.8 The medicine was easy to take. I did have a decrease in bone thickness. My bones have now shown and increase in mets."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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)."
