dex casodex

I have Fibromyalgia and my medicaid won't cover the Savella medicine I need.How do I get help in getting the madicine through the company who makes it?I am on limited income. ## I am very sorry about the problem you're having, however, the savings program for Savella is not available to those on government forms of insurance, only privately insured individuals. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? They may have samples, or they might be able to suggest an alternative medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Savella as possibly including nausea, dizziness, anxiety, seizures and ear ringing.

what happens if husband decided not to take the 'casodex' after lupron cancer treatments

My husband first took 45 mg Lupron injection and decided not take but three bacalutamide pills to ease hot flashes because didn't like contraindications. His energy levels are low. Is that possibly from the lupron? Are the bicalutamide pills going to give more energy? Should he be taking them for for better antiandrogen results? ## It is a very important medication in the treatment of his cancer, since it is an antiandrogen. His results really aren't going to improve, without it. Has he spoken to his doctor about it? What contraindications did he find so concerning? When battling cancer, it is normal for his energy levels to be low, so that may not change for awhile, even with the treatments.

Bicalay 50mg

This Is A Gerneric For Casodex 50mg I Use For Prostrat Cancer Is It The Same ## Hello, Did you mean to say Bicalutamide, the active ingredient in Casodex? If so, then the generic you have is the same except for the fact that it might not be as strong as the brand name variety. The reason being, if a medication is in generic form, it is permitted by the FDA to be allowed to contain as much as 20% more or less of the actual active ingredient. Also, depending on the manufacturer- the binders and fillers (inactive ingredients) used could be different. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Casodex Details I hope I have helped to answer your question!

casodex only

I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in 2001. I had radiation treatment 4 years later. Last summer my psa begin to rise rapidly. I was put on casodex & then 3 weeks later I had a lupron shot. I have not had a shot since & I continue to take 50 mg of casodex daily. My psa has stayed down for 4 months. My next blood test is April 7. Is it a bad idea to just stay on Casodex? I had hot flashes when I had the Lupron shot. I am not having hot flashes when only on Casodex. If my psa does not go up, I would like to just stay on Casodex. If my psa begins to rise I believe my Doctor plans to give me another Lupron shot. Does this seem like a good possible approach to my situation?

Do you currently have health insurance coverage? If so, do they supplement the costs of Casodex? If not, are you able to qualify for Medical / Medicaid where you are? Just trying to throw some ideas out there with regards to what public assistance programs might be available to you. Also, you might try contacting the manufacturer AstraZeneca, because sometimes the pharmaceutical companies are able to offer their own assistance plans. You should not have to suffe...

when is casadex becoming available in generic form

would like to know when casadex is going to be available in generic form ## The standard proprietary drug term is 18 years, this one came on the market in 1995, so there will be, at least, 5 more years, before a generic will become available.
