I was on Casodex for six months before during and after my SRT in mid to late 2017. I chose to forgo Lupron. My SE's were minimal, a few minor hot flashes here and there and some slight breast swelling and tenderness by the fourth month, for which I asked and was prescribed tamoxifen. However, my testosterone levels shot up almost immediately.
I doubt you will experience many SE's from the Casodex. It will most likely be a different story when the Lupron kicks in.
