Available in tablet form, Casodex® (bicalutamide) is a product used to treat advanced prostate cancer. Specifically, it is used for cases in which the prostate cancer has metastasized, or spread, to other parts of the body. This medication is taken once a day, ideally at the same time -- this helps keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream. Common side effects include hot flashes, loss of energy, and general pain.
