Available in the form of tablets, Casodex® (bicalutamide) is a medication that is taken once daily to treat advanced prostate cancer. It is used as a part of combination therapy with another drug: a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist.
One Casodex tablet is taken each day, at the same time each day. This will help keep an even amount of medicine in the bloodstream. You can take your dose with or without food. If it upsets your stomach, you may prefer to take it with food.
