I was diagnosed with endometriosis 15 years ago. The pain has been manageable and it hadn't caused too many problems for me until I decided to have a baby. After my surgery, my doctor thought Zoladex might be my best chance of being able to conceive. I have just finished my 6th (and final) month of treatment. My doctor also put me on Effexor 75mg/day to help with the mood swings and hot flashes. That helped alot. I still had hot flashes but not nearly as bad as other people have described. Just as soon as my menstrual cycle returns, we are going to start trying to conceive. That will be the true test of how well it worked.

I have been on the Zoladex for a little over 2 months for treatment of my endometriosis. This is my last option before I have to have a hysterectomy. So far it has been working pretty well. The only side effect I have really had is hot flashes which do get very annoying at times. But I can deal with the hot flashes since the medicine its self is doing what it was given to me to do...keep me pain free the endometriosis. So far this is the only medication I have tried that is keeping 100% pain free. I am very happy with it overall. The only thing I do not like is having to have the shots given in the stomach. After both shots that I have had so far my stomach was very tender at the site of the injection and I was very bloated for a couple of days afterwards. But overall it is working very well for me so far.

My entire body hurts all the time and I am always tired

Comment from: MoffitCCPatient, 45-54 on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: April 20

Over the past 12 months, I have taken Zoladex and Arimidex. Even though I have done a good job of restricting calories and exercising, it has been impossible to lose the weight I gained through chemotherapy 2 years ago. I am going off this drug now, and will only be taking Arimidex, so we'll see if that helps the weight problem at all. Also, have experienced vaginal dryness, sensation of warmth at times (but not actual hot flashes) , sweat easily when exercising outdoors, and some muscle stiffness.

I was diagnosed with endometrosis at the age of 17 and 8 years later, I'm still having trouble. I've had 3 laproscopic surgeries over the years and when the endo. returned, I just didn't want to do another one... so I decided to try the injections. Over the 6 months my mood swings were like nothing I'd ever experienced! I had all the symptoms of menopause- night sweats, decreased sexual desire, hot flashes!, etc. It has been about 9 months since the tx ended and I haven't had any pain. However, the 15 lbs I gained over 6 months is still attached to my butt!
