    Lupron doesn't just cause side effects. It causes permanent devastating injuries. You can literally wake up one day with a condition (like dystonia) and never recover. It's never safe to "try" Lupron. Google Lupron Petition2Congress to read - 13% more...

    I am glad that you posted...people need to realize that side effects are a part of any therapy but that all people will react differently to any therapy. We are not all the same, inside or out. I hope you continued to do well.

    Lupron is not indicated for any of the diseases that you were treated for. It is indicated for Endometriosis, Uterine Fibroids, Prostate Cancer and central precocious puberty. I would direct your unhappiness to your provider.
