Reviews for Xtandi
"My 69years old dad is taking Xtandi for 3 months now. First month was perfect, PSA went down from 275 to 180, he was feeling amazing and healthy. At the end of second month he started to get pain in lower back, very burny skin, he could not even sit. After 2 weeks he suddenly could not walk anymore on one leg. So he stopped Xtandi for 14 days. In this time he was able to walk again. Very weak but slowly walking. But his PSA is now back on 276. He has started Xtandi again. He has stage 4 Prostate cancer. Wish him luck...I believe this drug may work very well but can have terrible side effects!"

"My husband died Nov 22 2017 from small bowl cancer ! He was prescribed Xtandi in June of 2016 and took it for for six months! This is a very rare cancer only 2% of all cancer reported . He had no sign of this cancer in June by scans but was full blown in Now 2016 ! I am wondering if any of you are having this same problem ?"

"Found Xtandi to be a waste of time. Instead of aiding or lowering my PSA it raised it to 90 from about 15 when starting it. There was severe fatigue and dizzyness. Not satisfied."

"4 months at 160mg each day and 1 month at 120'mg a day. PSA was 48 when starting this medicine. PSA dropped to .20! Medication did it's job. BUT, side effects were extremely painful, tiring, hot flashes, losing my balance and so much more. I'm 83 years old and had stage 4 prostrate cancer. If I get 4 more years or so, its worth it. Have been off medicine for about 3 months, and still having side effects! Rating would be 8."
