My husband (metastatic PCa) has had encouraging results on Casodex monotherapy: in one month on 50mg/day his PSA plunged from 73 to 5.2. On the increased dose of 150 mg/day the following month (Pharmacy gave incorrect instructions) after one month it is now 1.6. He takes the generic form of the drug, Bicalutamide. He will take this for 3 months then will have about 7 weeks of Proton Beam Radiation. His only side effect from the Casodex is breast growth & tenderness & yesterday he filled a prescription for Cabergoline to address this problem. Hope this info might prove useful to those considering going the hormonal route. We continue to hope & pray, not only for him, but also for all the brave souls battling this monster! Keep fighting!
