  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Urine has smelled like I ate asparagus for past 2 weeks. (None has been actually eaten) Got second lupron shot 22.5 mg about 3 weeks ago and that evening slipped on ice and fell on injection site. Onset of odor was preceded by sharp tin foil taste in mouth for about 4 days that occurred when eating or drinking anything except water or toothpaste. I eat probably more than recommended but irregular timeframes( I'm 24 hr on call). Have gluten intolerance( had that before shots). Been eating lots of fresh honey. Sporadically take add back to aid with hot flashes. .625 mg flattened oval purple pill.
