Were you looking for information about Zoladex? Zolodex is a common misspelling of Zoladex.
Zoladex® (goserelin acetate implant) is a prescription hormone medication used in adults to decrease the production of testosterone (in men) and estrogen (in women). It is approved to treat advanced prostate cancer, advanced breast cancer, and certain other gynecological conditions.
Zoladex comes in the form of an implant that is inserted just under the skin of the abdomen (stomach), and gradually releases medicine as it dissolves in the body. It is generally well tolerated, but side effects may include headaches, hot flushes, and mood changes.
