    0 out of 5

    What is Androcur used for?

    Androgens such as testosterone are natural male sex hormones which are also produced, to a slight extent, in females. In men, androgens may help cancer cells to grow in some types of prostate cancer. By blocking these hormones, Androcur® 50mg may slow or stop the growth of cancer. Androcur® 50mg may also be used in combination with other medicines or following surgical removal of the testes to treat side effects such as “hot flushes” or “sweats” and to prevent any initial worsening of the disease.

    How is Androcur given?

    Swallow the tablets whole with some liquid after meals.

    Take your medicine after meals at about the same time each day to maximise effect and to help you remember when to take them.

    Continue taking your medicine for as long as your doctor tells you. This medicine helps to control your condition, but does not cure it. It is important to keep taking your medicine even if you feel well.

    What are the common side effects?

    Tell your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you do not feel well while you are taking Androcur® 50mg. All medicines can have side effects. Sometimes they are serious, most of the time they are not. You may need medical treatment if you get some of the side effects.

  • Razylan Raloxifene 60MG X 28 TABS

    0 out of 5

    What is it used for?

    Raloxifene is used by women to prevent and treat bone loss (osteoporosis) after menopause. It slows down bone loss and helps to keep bones strong, making them less likely to break.

    Raloxifene may also lower the chance of getting a certain type of breast cancer (invasive breast cancer) after menopause.

    Raloxifene is not an estrogen hormone, but it acts like estrogen in some parts of the body, like your bones. In other parts of the body (uterus and breasts), raloxifene acts like an estrogen blocker. It does not relieve menopause symptoms such as hot flashes. Raloxifene belongs to a class of drugs known as selective estrogen receptor modulators-SERMs.

    How is it given?

    Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Take this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

    Be sure to get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet. Consult your doctor or pharmacist to see if you need to take calcium and vitamin D supplements.

    What are the common side effects?

    Hot flashes, leg cramps, and an increased risk of blood clots and other cardiovascular events such as stroke
