Abiraterone G.L. contains the active substance abiraterone acetate. It is used in adult men to treat prostate cancer that has already spread to other areas of the body. Abiraterone G.L. prevents your body from producing testosterone. This can slow down the growth of prostate cancer.
Also, if abiraterone G.L. is prescribed early in the disease when it is still responding to hormone treatment, it is used with a treatment that lowers testosterone levels (androgen deprivation therapy).
If you are taking this medicine, your doctor will also prescribe another medicine called prednisone or prednisolone. This is done to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, excessive accumulation of water in the body (fluid retention) or reduced levels of potassium in the blood.
