Usage and Dosage:
The recommended dosage for X-Trant is 560mg to 980mg daily, taken in divided doses. The medication should be taken with food, preferably at the same time each day. It is important not to exceed the recommended dosage. X-Trant should be taken as directed by your doctor.

Mechanism of Action:
X-Trant works by blocking the growth and spread of cancer cells. It is converted in the body to other compounds that interact with the DNA in cancer cells, preventing their growth and division. Additionally, X-Trant can affect the structure and function of microtubules in cancer cells, which play a role in cell division and growth.
X-Trant should not be taken by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It should also not be taken by men who are allergic to estramustine or any of the other ingredients in the medication. Additionally, X-Trant should not be taken by men who have a history of blood clots or bleeding disorders.

Like all medications, X-Trant can cause side effects in some people. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue.
