Enzalutamide is a medication that comes in the form of capsules. It is used in the treatment of prostate cancer. Specifically, it is indicated for use in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). This means the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, and it is no longer responding to treatments that lower testosterone levels (castration-resistant).
Enzalutamide belongs to a class of drugs known as androgen receptor inhibitors. It works by blocking the action of androgens, which are male hormones, like testosterone, that can stimulate the growth of prostate cancer cells.
The medication is typically taken orally, in the form of capsules, and the dosage and frequency of administration will depend on the patient's condition and the prescribing doctor's recommendations.
As with any medication, Enzalutamide may have potential side effects and interactions with other drugs. It's crucial to follow your doctor's instructions carefully and inform them about any other medications you are taking or medical conditions you have to ensure safe and effective treatment.
