Chalkie Posted August 18, 2016 Share Posted August 18, 2016 When psa started to rise after a couple of years on Zolodex I was put on cosodex and for 4 months and then told to stop this and after tests (scan, liver funtion etc) the medical oncologist at PMCC introduced Anandron - double dose (two pills a day) for the first two weeks then on a day. PSA was12.9 after a month it was up to 13.2and after another 3 months it has come down to 10. I sufferred from anxiety and lost 10% of body weight - nasty taste in mouth - putting me of red wine and coffee. Cardio at the gym much more difficult - can only last 20 mins where as I was working out on the bike for 35 mins. They said to be careful about pnemonia like symtoms. I am on medication for axiety and it is working. The Oncologist said when PSA gets to 20 chemo (six sessions) will be introduced - may be in six months. Questions: Has anyone had a similar experience? Are there any recomendations re taking the anandron ie At night (thats when I take it) or in the morning, with food or on an empty stomach, with warm water?
