Has anyone had experince with Xlandi? Wouldn't it better to go to Lupron if the PSA is going up after being on Bicalutamide and Finasteride?

Thank you for your response,

My history is under the topic Bicalutamide and Finasteride and I am going to my Oncologist on the 2th. The reason I asked about the Xtandi is that my Surgeon, who I stay in contact with, said if my next test shows a big increase in my PSA I should go on it.Here are the high lights:

Prostatectomy March 05 gleason was a 6 and PSA 2.7

PSA raises to .9 Aug 09

Salvage external RT Sept 09

PSA 1.84 Sept. 12

started on Biclutamide and Finasteride went to .1

stopped for 3 months and PSA went to .52

started again and it went to .21 3 months later .22 then 3 months later .32

They will have me run tests again and if they say Lupron I wondered about the Xtandi?

With so many options just looking ideas. 

Thank you again.
