Lupron caused severe depression, fatigue, joint pain and very disrupted sleep and my father committed suicide after three injections that a nurse practioner gave him for prostate cancer. This drug us poison. There is a petition against this drug with Congress. He also had a bad heart and lupron causes cardiac arrest so the nurse never should have given him this drug. This drug has many complaints against it from patients, researchers, etc. Don't take this drug at all.

I have experienced a lot of tiredness, mild night sweats, a couple days of depression here and there, a headache lasting a couple days, an upset stomach in the evenings, weight gain and acne. No symptoms that were major and nothing that made me want to stop taking the mediciation. It is part of my IVF cycle/treatment and I will only need to be on this medication for about 3-4 weeks.

Had 6months of once a month shot of lupron to shrink uterine fibroid. i experienced severe hot flashes, depressio, hair loss and darkening of my skin especially on my face.But the most important thing is that it shrunk my 22cm fibroid to 15cm and made the surgery safer and easier,i had a positive attitude though and i take all the side effects as mild changes that will go with time, and most importantly,i exercised regularly and was eatind lots of fruits, veggie and soy milk.

I have had sever hot flashes and night sweats as a result of my second injection. I have also had some really up and down mood swings. However, on a bright note I have had less pain with my endometriosis than before.

This drug has caused my dear friend to have osteopenia and thyroid disorders as well as permanent disability and continual pain. All of this is medically verified by M.D. doctors. I personally have spoken with a woman who is only 35 years old, who now walks with a cane, after Lupron. Prior to Lupron she was active and healthy other than endometrisis. This drug is pure poison check out Youtube see a ABC News Story from Las Vegas. Further, it is category X for pregnancy and can harm the fetus. Why are they giving it for IVF? There are over 12,000 MedWatch reports about this hideous drug at FDA. There are far more risks than benefits. It has a 0% cure rate for Endometriosis and a 98% adverse event rate and it is ONLY a temporary pain reliever that shuts down your entire endocrine systems. Run away from your doctor if he suggests this nightmare. This drug destroys the human body!!!
