Honvan tablets side effects

My father is having the honavan tablets because his psa level was diagnosed as having gone up from 22 to 33. But instead of three tablets of 120 mg he is having only one of 120 mg at night as his body weight is only 41 kgs and he cant tolerate more. But he is feeling a kind of suffiocation in chest and breathlessness. He is also feeling low and tierd. He is 86 and till now has been a very active man. Please advise. He did not feel any effect of high psa- it was shown in a regular check up.

Doc says he cant have another operation - thou he did have one few years back and took medicine for sometime till he was asked to stop.

Checked with Cadila. They are out of stock. Is there an alternative in India? And is there an equivalent tablet abroad?

Try Ketoconazole

Ketoconazole
1. Dose :--- Tab Ketaconazole 200 mg tds with Tab of Vitamin C (500 mg)  1 hr before meals
2. Tab of Prednisolone 2.5 mg tds with meals
3. No alcohol with Tab Ketaconazole
4. Avoid antacids like Ranitidine ,Omeprazole and Digene
5. One Bowel motion every day
6. It has been suggested by some that those taking HDK with HC carry an ID card or Medic Alert bracelet indicating the possible need for supplementary doses of HC during periods of stress. Ask your pharmacist or doctor how to obtain this card
Side Effects
The most common side effects are weakness or lack of strength, gastrointestinal complaints such as nausea or vomiting, liver toxicity, skin reactions, and a potential risk of adrenal suppression.
It is important to emphasize that any nausea or loss of appetite a patient may experience after initiating Ketoconazole  usually improves over time.
