After having a dizzy spell while shopping at Costco to prep for the big weekend, my husband ended up in ER for most of Friday pre-Labor Day. What he experienced seemed to me like momentary seizure as earlier at Office Depot he had stared off into space and swayed sideways. No he is not having a reaction to shopping.
He has been on Xtandi for 7 months with a 6 week holiday from it due to other possible side effects and seemed to be tolerating it well. It's been somewhat working.
He landed on his knees and other then bruising wasn't hurt. It was a learning experience for me that I need to be prepared for an emergency.
The ER contacted his MO who said to cut the dose in half to two-40 mg pills.
My husband is the strong, silent type and not good at communicating to me what is happening with his body. After the episode, he told me that he has been feeling dizzy spells in his head routinely in the mornings. Three days after reducing dose, he says the dizziness is gone.
Just wanting to share with others who can learn from our experience.
