Nilandron (Nilutamide) belongs to a group of medicines called "antiandrogens". It blocks the effect of hormones called androgens, which are naturally produced by your body. Nilandron is used to treat prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Nilandron is for use in men who have undergone surgical castration. By blocking the effect of androgens, Nilandron may help slow down the disease in your prostate gland. It will also help to reduce the symptoms you experience because of this disease. Take Nilandron tablets exactly as your doctor has told you.
Canadian Pharmacy King currently offers the brand Nilandron (Nilutamide) from Canada also called Anandron by Xediton Pharmaceuticals in the strength of 50 mg tablets. The generic alternative is currently unavailable.
