In brief: 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.
