Prostate Cancer Home > Flutamide Product Information

Flutamide (Eulexin®) is a medicine approved for the treatment of prostate cancer. Specifically, it is approved to treat Stage IIB to III (Stages B2 to C) and Stage IV (Stage D2). This medicine is always combined with another product: a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist. Together, the two drugs affect the production and action of testosterone, which inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
 
It is important to review the safety information for this product before beginning treatment with flutamide. For example, your healthcare provider needs to know about any allergies you may have and any other drugs or supplements you are taking.
