Were you looking for information about Zoladex? Zolidex is a common misspelling of Zoladex.
Zoladex® (goserelin acetate implant) is a medicine prescribed to treat advanced prostate cancer, advanced breast cancer, and certain gynecological conditions. It works by decreasing the amount of testosterone produced in the testes and the amount of estrogen produced in the ovaries.
This implant is inserted just under the skin of the abdomen (stomach), and gradually releases medicine for 4 to 12 weeks. The medicine is typically well tolerated, but side effects may include mood changes, headaches, and hot flushes.
