A member asked:

Why do we have to take lupron (leuprolide) and norethidrone together?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Add back therapy: Lupron (leuprolide) acts on the pituitary to shut down production of hormones such as estrogen. This can lead to side effects such as hot flashes and bone loss. Adding back some hormones, in this case progestin, can help ameliorate these symptoms.
