Reported Results
Benefits:   The benefits were not good, and this drug was very expensive and was not effective at all for the problem I was experiencing. At the time when I was experiencing complications from the implants, I truly believed that my Doctor did not prescribed the drug in time. The literature I read on this drug claims that it is more likely to work if used early in the treatment of Capsular Contracture.
Side effects:   I tolerated the medication very well. I didn't experience any illness or side effects from Accolate. I felt a strong mental negativity towards the drug when it was prescribed based on the literature I read and my Doctor's statement about being treated early. I think I tried the treatment knowing in my mind that it was not going to work.
Comments:   I was required to take Accolate for three months to promote softening of my Breast Implants. The 20mg tablets were to be taken twice daily along with continued daily massage of my breasts. My Doctor said that the treatment had more chances of being effective if used early in detecting the Capsular Contracture (My treatment was started 5 months after the breast implant surgery). If the treatment didn't work, he advised, I would need surgery.
