Hi there Vasco and all. My husband is now on Zytiga with prednisone. We don't like the prednisone part - immune suppression is just ridiculous when someone has cancer. Also bone loss. We wanted Xtandi but the cancer centre doc couldn't get authorization for it. However, we have since learned that my husband's insurer will cover it.
Is there an alternative to prednisone when used with Zytiga? What if we halved the dose even? I realize it is supposed to reduce side effects.
