Take flutamide exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist to explain them to you.
Take each dose with a full glass of water.
Flutamide is usually taken three times a day (every 8 hours). Follow your doctor’s instructions.
Your doctor will need to monitor your liver function with blood tests before starting treatment with flutamide, every month for the first 4 months of treatment, and periodically thereafter.
In rare cases, flutamide has caused severe liver damage resulting in death or hospitalization. Notify your doctor immediately if you develop nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, unusual fatigue, loss of appetite, “flu-like” symptoms, yellow skin or eyes, itching, clay-colored stools, or dark urine. These symptoms may be early signs of liver damage.
Do not stop taking this medication without first talking to your doctor. Store flutamide at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
If you missed a dose – take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take only your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose of this medication.
The recommended dosage is 2 capsules 3 times a day at 8-hour intervals for a total daily dose of 750 mg.
