Were you looking for information about Zoladex? Zoledex is a common misspelling of Zoladex.
If you have advanced prostate or breast cancer, your healthcare provider may prescribe Zoladex® (goserelin acetate implant). This medicine comes in the form of an implant that is surgically placed just under the skin of the abdomen (stomach). It works to slow down the growth of cancer cells by decreasing testosterone and estrogen levels. Mood changes, hot flushes, and headaches are among the possible side effects.
