Specializes in Urology

Multiple choices: Casodex is available as a generic, Eulexin was the first drug like it but with a higher risk of diarrhea. Finally Nilutamide is an option. Another option is to discuss with your urologic oncologist whether you need Casodex and for how long. This depends on why you are taking it (flare prevention or biochemical recurrence on Lupron (leuprolide) or similar injections).
