Eulexin® (flutamide) is prescribed in combination with another drug to treat prostate cancer. By blocking the effects of testosterone, cancer cells are not able to grow as quickly. Eulexin comes in capsule form and is typically taken three times a day, with eight hours between doses. Most men tolerate it well; however, side effects are possible and can include hot flashes, loss of sex drive, and impotence.
