It was so wonderful living pain free while on this injection, having no periods was a bonus too. The only hassle was finding medical staff experienced in administering the injection and found going to the local hospital quite good. Also asked for general anes. cos do not like needles, and this one is big!! The hot flushes were a bit of a pain, but got used to them and prefered them to pain.

I started Zoladex five yrs ago when I was 37. I am now going to pursue a hysterectomy. The drug was effective at keeping the cancer from returning, but the side effects have really been horrible. Mood swings, depression, hot flashes, insomnia, my blood pressure and cholesterol went wacko, weight gain, vaginal dryness and alternating yeast and bacterial infections. My body does not like this drug, but really didn't have an alternative except hysterectomy.

I had severe endometriosis and at age 28, underwent lap & laser, then 3 months of Zoladex, then a second lap & laser to get rid of any remaining endo. Side effects were tough - total menopause at age 28! However, the treatment worked like a charm and it was worth every minute. I followed a totally organic diet throughout and actually lost 10 lb while on this drug. I then fell pregnant within 6 weeks of my second lap & laser, and now have 2 beautiful kids and have not had any endo symptoms since. That was 8 years ago. I can't rate this drug (nor my first class OBGYN who did the surgeries) highly enough!

I was on it for 6 months and it worked great. If you have Endometriosis and your doctor wants to put you on this I would recommend it. I have pain 3 weeks out of the month and for 6 months i had no pain at all. It is not the best felling when you are getting the shot in your stomach but i would do it again in a heart beat. Hope this helps anyone who is going to have this treatment.

lower abdominal aches after injections for a few days than back to normal was on 1 implant for a while than had to increase to 2 implants to stop my menstrual cycle after about a year had to start back up on the implants because cycles started again now on 3 implants every month for the last 4 months don't know how long I'll be on it this time around. But, as long as it keeps my cancer from returning I'll take it as long as needed.

The side effects hot flashes, flushing and sweating, has had a very big impact on me. All day and night, I have to change my clothes two or three times a day. I have had surgery and take other meds for this cancer.

Male 67+. On a regimen of a shot every 90 days for two years. Have had 4 shots so far. Only side effect would be no libido at all. Other than that nothing. Outcome of 0 PSA supersedes the single side effect.
