Although prostate cancer is typically a disease that progresses slowly, if it reaches Stage IIB to III or Stage IV, a man may be prescribed flutamide (Eulexin®). This drug, which comes in capsule form, is given as part of a combination treatment plan. As an antiandrogen, it works by blocking the effects of testosterone, which the cancer cells need to multiply. Most men tolerate flutamide well; however, side effects can include hot flashes and erectile dysfunction.
