AZ

The safety of FASLODEX has been evaluated in clinical studies. As with any medication, you may experience side effects when taking FASLODEX, so it is important to be prepared. Click here to get helpful questions to ask your doctor.

During your treatment with FASLODEX, you may experience side effects. If you are concerned about any symptoms you may be experiencing, you should contact your doctor’s office right away.

Most common side effects

In a clinical trial, commonly reported side effects seen with FASLODEX were injection site pain, nausea, muscle, joint, and bone pain, headache, tiredness, hot flashes, vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, cough, constipation, shortness of breath, and increased liver enzymes

0.6% of patients receiving FASLODEX 500 mg and 0.8% of patients receiving FASLODEX 250 mg withdrew from treatment due to drug-related 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).
