Oncologist recommends zoladex (goserelin) to be injected, given the side effects, is it worth it?

Oncologist recommends zoladex (goserelin) to be injected, given the side effects, is it worth it?

Yes: This assumes the reasons for advising the medicine are valid. With that in mind the answer is yes, overwhelmingly. Also, there are no "side effects" to zoladex (goserelin), (goserelin) only "effects". The goal of zoladex (goserelin) is to lower testosterone levels. Low levels result in a predictable set of issues over time. Side effects (unexpected problems) do not happen w/ zoladex (goserelin). Only the expected! Read more

How long does it take for zoladex (goserelin) injection to work IV had it 10 days ago and still in pain with cyst on ovaries?

How long does it take for zoladex (goserelin) injection to work IV had it 10 days ago and still in pain with cyst on ovaries?

IV ZOLADEX (goserelin)???: I do not think that zoladex (goserelin) IV is a currently used treatment for a painful ovarian cyst. Without details as to size and an ultrasound exam showing the cyst's characteristics, I cannot recommend treatment. A painful clear ovarian cyst can be aspirated with ultrasound transvaginal guidance and the pain should go away within a few hours, if not sooner. Hope this info helps! Read more

My daughter had a pituitary gland disorder as a child which resulted in a precocious puberty. .. She stopped her zoladex injections at twelve and she is now 21. .. For the past 6 years she has suffered form acute anxiety and panic lasting for days there h

Anxiety DO: There is no reason the precocious puberty and zoladex (goserelin) treatment are directly related to anxiety, at least as a pharmacologic (drug) effect. It's possible that her experience and worries from that time are affecting her, it also may be unrelated. Evaluate with a counsellor or a good primary doctor for panic/anxiety do, and best of luck.
