Zitiga side effects

After 10 years on iinterrmittent and then continuos Lupron (and Casodex) I started on 400 mg Zitiga and 10 mg predisone per day on Oct 15. after two or three weeks I started to get dark urine which may or not be blood--cystoscopy sheduled.

Then yesterday my elbow flared up==swollen and painfull .Both problems are noted as possible side effects of Zitiga.

Has anyone else experienced these side effects and what was the treatment? thanks in advance

Sorry about the side effects. I have been on Zytiga since last June and have been on Lupron for about a year and a half. The only side effects I had come from the Lupron.


I was on Zytiga for six months - have now been on hiatus for two months (long story.) I have experienced significant joint pain, mostly feet, ankles, knees and hips, but possibly in my upper extremities as well. I am taking turmeric supplements and occasionally ibuprofen to deal with the pain. So far with limited success. Sorry to hear about your problems. For what it's worth, the Zytiga was very effective in keeping my PSA extremely low - 0.008 before I stopped taking it.
