    I've only had one shot, and although I am supposed to endure 5 more months, I don't think I can follow through with more of this. My family thinks I am crazy for not wanting to complete it, saying that every drug has side effects. One week ago after - 75% more...

    I feel your pain. I didn't prepare myself the the side effects either. About 2 weeks after my first shot the hot flashes started and were out of control. The emotions started right after. I'm getting my 4th shot today. I thought I'd only have to do 6 - 31% more...

    See an endocrinologist and have him or her check your hormone levels. Lupron works through your pituitary and has damaged mine. I will never recover. I hope this isn't the case with you. It would be good to know though, if your hormones are on target - 1% more...

    I had add back therapy also and it didn't work. We even had me on a low dose of estrogen to try to help. Add back is good for Lupron's normal side effects, but not for when it has done serious damage to your pituitary. I hope that isn't the case for - 28% more...

    See an endocrinologist. Lupron stops your body from producing estrogen by acting on your pituitary. It is very possible that it caused damage to your pituitary, like it did mine, and it is irreversible. An endocrinologist can test you for hormone lev - 33% more...

    I agree so much with what you say about age. Lupron works on your pituitary gland in your still developing brain. It seems crazy to do that! It ruined my life at 39. I would hate to see that happen to someone so young.
