    What is Zytiga used for?


    Zytiga is used in combination with prednisone, to treat prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body in adult patients who have no or mild symptoms, after failure of the androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), in adult patients who have had prior cancer treatment with docetaxel after failure of ADT, and in adult patients with newly diagnosed hormone-sensitive high-risk prostate cancer who may have received up to 3 months of prior ADT. This medication works by stopping the body from making androgens in testes, adrenal glands and prostate cancer tumor. This slows down the growth of prostate cancer. Zytiga may also help in delaying the decline in daily activity levels and delaying the need for drugs to treat cancer pain. Take Zytiga exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The usual dose is two 500 mg tablets or four 250 mg tablets (1g) by mouth once a day. Zytiga must be taken on an empty stomach since food can increase the blood level of Zytiga and this may be harmful. Do not eat any solid or liquid food two hours before taking Zytiga and at least one hour after taking Zytiga.
