I am on IADT3 therapy for the last 6 months. I have been having shortness of breath for the last couple of months. I have had a pulmonary work up and a stress test done in the last several weeks which have come back negative. Has anyone had similar breathing problems attributed to Casodex or was switched to a different anti-androgen (Flutamide) and did this help?
