You should not start taking bicalutamide until you have received the LHRH injection prescribed as part of your treatment.

To be sure this medication is helping your condition and is not causing harmful effects, your prostate and liver function will need to be checked with blood tests on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled appointments.
