I am a medical transcriptionist and the medication came up on one of my dictations. I have never heard of it before so I was just wondering.

Anon - Are you sure you have the right spelling for this? Calcinex is a liquid hardness stabiliser for preventing lime precipitation and deposits in swimming pools, filters and heat exchangers.

You may mean Casodex, which is a type of hormonal therapy that is used in the treatment of prostate cancer. It's also known as bicalutamide. Pat
