Frequently asked questions about Caluran Products

Frequently asked questions about Bicalutamide

Q. Can Caluran cause infertility?
There is limited data to support that Caluran causes infertility. Caluran has been shown to affect fertility in animals and therefore it is assumed that it may cause fertility on humans. Some studies have shown that it affects spermatogenesis (origin and development of the sperm cells).
Q. What should I avoid while taking Caluran?
Skin sensitivity has been observed in some patients while taking Caluran. Therefore, you should avoid direct sun exposure, sunlamps, and tanning beds. It is advised to use a sunscreen during treatment with Caluran.
Q. Is Caluran a form of chemotherapy?
No, Caluran is not a form of chemotherapy medicine, it is anti-androgen medicine. Androgens such as testosterone are natural male sex hormones. Caluran works by blocking the effect of androgens (testosterone) in order to stop the growth and spread of cancer cells.
Q. Does Caluran cause hair loss?
Yes, Caluran may cause hair loss as it is a common side effect. However, this does not affect everyone. Consult your doctor, if hair loss is worrying you.
