HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Casodex (bicalutamide) increases the effect of warfarin. This means that the action of warfarin is increased with the use of this medication.

If you wish you can cross check them yourself at the drug interaction checker online.

You may need to speak to your doctor about this interaction.

I hope this helps
