- In a clinical trial, commonly reported side effects seen with FASLODEX were injection site pain, nausea, muscle, joint, and bone pain.
- In this trial, 0.6% of patients receiving FASLODEX 500 mg and 0.8% of patients receiving FASLODEX 250 mg withdrew from treatment due to side effects
- Because FASLODEX is metabolized, or broken down, primarily in the liver, a monthly dose of 250 mg is recommended for patients with moderate liver problems
- FASLODEX was not studied in patients with severe liver problems
- Because FASLODEX is administered directly into the muscle, you should tell your doctor if you have a blood disorder or are on anticoagulants (sometimes called blood thinners)
