Prostate Cancer Home > Casodex and Feeling Tired

Many people wonder if they will feel tired while taking Casodex® (bicalutamide). In clinical studies, up to 22 percent of people taking the drug reported weakness or loss of energy as a side effect. Because this medication has been reported to cause drowsiness, it's a good idea to avoid driving, operating heavy machinery, or doing anything else that could be dangerous until you know how Casodex affects you.
