Apo-flutamide is used with the luteinizing hormone (LHRH) agonist to treat metastatic (advanced cancer) prostate cancer in men. Apo-flutamide belongs to a group of medicines called antiandrogens. It works by blocking the action of androgen (a male hormone) to stop the growth and spread of cancer cells.
Adadut is used alone or in combination with tamsulosin (Flomax®) to treat men who have symptoms of an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Benign prostate enlargement is a problem that men can experience as they age. The prostate gland is located below the bladder. As the prostate gland enlarges, certain gland muscles may contract and interfere with the tube that drains urine from the bladder. This can cause problems with urination, such as a frequent urge to urinate, a weak stream when urinating, or a feeling of not being able to empty the bladder completely.
