What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Emcyt is used to treat some types of prostate cancer. In the body, estramustine breaks down into estrogens (estrone, estradiol) and a type of cancer drug (estromustine). Emcyt is thought to work by increasing estrogens, which interfere with prostate cancer, and by slowing/stopping the growth of cancer cells.
How to Use Emcyt
Take Emcyt by mouth on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal) as directed by your doctor, usually 3 to 4 times a day. Take Emcyt with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters) unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Take Emcyt regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to take it at the same times each day as directed. The Dosage of Emcyt is based on your medical condition, weight, and response to therapy. Take Emcyt 3 hours before or after taking any products containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium. Some examples include quinapril, didanosine, vitamins/minerals, and antacids. Dairy products (such as milk, yogurt), calcium-enriched juice, sucralfate, bismuth subsalicylate, iron, and zinc are also included. These products bind with estramustine, preventing its full absorption. Do not increase your dose or take Emcyt more often than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and the risk of serious side effects may be increased. Since Emcyt can be absorbed through the skin and lungs, women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle Emcyt or breathe the dust from the capsules.
