My friend has been on Zytiga for the last five weeks. Last week his blood was tested for PSA and it showed increase from 35 to 90. This has shocked us. The pain is moderate and continues to be so.

Does anyone have similar experience i.e. PSA going up. Does it come down once it goes up during treatment?

PSA levels can increase initially with Zytiga before the levels start to fall. PSA levels can be misleading since they are an indirect marker of cellular debris from the prostate cancer. As the tumour dies off the PSA levels can rise as more cellular debris enters the bloodstream. Eventually this should fall to a lower level after 3 months. If Zytiga fails to work then you should try Salvestrols which work beyond Zytiga.
