    After 4 years of treatment with Lupton for Stage 4 metastatic protrate cancer, I was switched to Trelstar due to a corporate decision by my Oncology group. After the first two doses I experienced increased bone pain and hot flashes etc. Then the the symptoms subsided. The discomfort at the injection site was essentially non existant as compared to a "marble sized" hot ball experienced with Lupron which lasted 4-6 weeks after injection. The continued very low level of PSA would indicate that the treatment is still effective. In that, I am pleased.

    During a period of nine months while receiving this drug for hormone therapy (total androgen ablation) I have suffered mental mood swings/depression, frequent hot flashes that have often been severe enough to be debilitating, and significant loss of strength and stamina, particularly in my legs.

    As compared to three other hormone therapy drugs I have taken during since beinning treatment on May 9, 2003, this drug has produced by far the worst side effects, particularly severe, frequent hot flashes and extended periods of my legs feeling very heavy and weak. I did not have these problems while previously taking Zoloadex, Eligard, or Lupron and have demanded no further injections of this drug.
