What Abiraterone ACTe is and what it is used for?
Abiraterone ACTe contains a medicine called abiraterone acetate. It is used to treat prostate cancer in adult men that has spread to other parts of the body. Abiraterone ACTe stops your body from making testosterone; this can slow the growth of prostate cancer.
When Abiraterone ACTe is prescribed for the early stage of disease where it is still responding to hormone therapy, it is used with a treatment that lowers testosterone (androgen deprivation therapy).
When you take this medicine, your doctor will also prescribe another medicine called prednisone or prednisolone. This is to lower your chances of getting high blood pressure, having too much water in your body (fluid retention), or having reduced levels of a chemical known as potassium in your blood.
