Bicalutamide Brand Name
If you are a man with advanced metastatic prostate cancer, your healthcare provider may recommend bicalutamide, a drug sold under the brand name Casodex®. This product is taken by mouth once a day and is generally well tolerated. Common side effects include hot flashes, body pain, and weakness.
If you don't want to buy brand-name Casodex, generic bicalutamide is available. It comes in the same form and strength as the brand-name drug and is considered equivalent. However, it is allowed to contain different inactive ingredients, and this could cause problems for people with certain allergies or sensitivities.
