Calutide is a brand name for the medication Bicalutamide. Bicalutamide belongs to a class of medications known as nonsteroidal antiandrogens. It is primarily used in the treatment of prostate cancer.


Prostate cancer is often stimulated to grow by the male hormone testosterone. Bicalutamide works by blocking the effects of testosterone on the prostate cancer cells, slowing down the growth and spread of the cancer.


Calutide (Bicalutamide) is typically used in combination with other medications or treatments for prostate cancer, such as surgery or radiation therapy. It may also be used alone or in combination with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist for the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer.


This medication is usually taken orally in the form of tablets. The dosage and duration of treatment may vary depending on the individual patient's condition and response to therapy.


Common side effects of Calutide (Bicalutamide) may include hot flashes, breast tenderness or enlargement, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, nausea, and diarrhea. Rarely, more serious side effects such as liver problems or lung disease may occur. It's essential to inform a healthcare professional if any side effects are experienced during treatment.


As with any medication, it's crucial to use Calutide (Bicalutamide) only as prescribed by a healthcare professional and to follow their instructions carefully. It's also important to attend regular follow-up appointments for monitoring of prostate cancer progression and potential side effects of treatment.
