What Are The Side Effects Of Lupron
Terrible: Lupron (leuprolide) causes reversible menopause. So as soon as the medicine takes effect the estrogen drops to zero same as complete menopause. Hot flashes, night sweats, moods, memory issues and joint pain etc. Many dr.S use this for endometriosis but endo is a surgically treated disease. Lupron (leuprolide) only temporarily diminishes symptoms but makes people miserable. Excisional surgery is needed via laparoscopy! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
1 or 3 months: Lupron (leuprolide) comes in 1 or 3 month doses (3.75 or 11.25 mg) and these injections usually cause menopause symptoms which i've seen as both mild or severe. It rarely continues beyond the treatment period & is a good way to pre-treat or reverse endometriosis or to shrink fibroid tumors prior to surgery. Discuss with your doc if your symptoms are severe or if you need estrogen to counter the severe effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually Mild: When i treat patients with Depo-Provera Lupron (leuprolide) (for instance for endometriosis) i usual;y use add back therapy, this is a second medicine used to prevent the side effects from lupron (leuprolide). The addback usually reduces or gets rid of any hot flashes, any vaginal dryness, or any mood swings. So in this way i usually prevent side effects from ever occurring. ...Read more
Hot Flashes: By far, the most common side effect is hot flashes, because Lupron (leuprolide) causes a temporary menopause. Poor sleep resulting in emotional side effects or head ache are also common. A serious effect from long-term Lupron (leuprolide) is osteoporosis. Many of these side effects are reduced or eliminated with extra "add-back" hormones. Some women have no side effects at all. ...Read more
Help. Don't want to use lupron/depovera b4 fibroid surgery , coz of bad side effects it has & besides , it doesn't work for everyone.How can I shrink fi?
Shrinking: It is my opinion that it is not a good idea to try to shrink the fibroids before surgery unless they are up to your chest. Why? Because when you shrink them they become harder to remove. The surgery is harder and i think using these medications for the purpose is generally a bad idea. But that is just my opinion. I recommend you get other opinions in your area. ...Read more

Ovarian remnant: Lupron (leuprolide) will suppress endometriosis and the ovarian remnant but yes the side effects can be difficult to live with. You can do add-back therapy to help reduce the side effects. The add-back used is a Progesterone but some will add estrogen too if side effects are severe. You could try the 1 month injection dose with add-back and see how you do. I assume you have already tried birth control pills. ...Read more

Consider neurontin (gabapentin): It was not specifically studied for hot flashes with lupron, (leuprolide) however, neurontin, in a study this year, worked as well as estrogen for hot flashes. Ssri antidepressants have been used for hot flashes but have never been shown to work as well as hormones. Neurontin has been used for some time with hot flashes but a head to head study showing it is as good as hormonal treatment is impressive. ...Read more
