Product Description:

  • ZYTIGA contains a medicine called abiraterone acetate. 
  • It is used to treat prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body in adult men. 
  • ZYTIGA prevents your body from making testosterone, and this can slow the growth of prostate cancer.
  • If ZYTIGA is prescribed at an early stage of the disease, where hormone treatment is still having an effect, it is used together with a medicine that lowers testosterone levels (androgen suppressive treatment).
  • When you use this medicine, your doctor will also prescribe another medicine called prednisone or prednisolone. 
  • This is to reduce the risk of you getting  high blood pressure , too much water in the body (fluid retention), or a reduced amount of potassium in the blood.

  • The amount of prednisone or prednisolone you take may need to be changed if a medical emergency occurs. 
  • The doctor will tell you if you need to change the amount of prednisone or prednisolone. 
  • Do not stop taking prednisone or prednisolone unless your doctor tells you to.
