  • Your experience with eligard
    I started out with Firmagon in April 2013. They decided that I could be alergic to it after my belly swelled up and turned red. Switched to Eligard January 2014. The eligard causes more unwanted symptoms than the Firmagon.

    I would like to just stop taking this drug even though it has reduced my PSA to under 1 and the testosterone is where they like to see it. I am doing a number of natural things involving the diet. Many people believe that this can work to bring about a remission. Of course, while I am taking the drug to lower these markers, I can not know what the natural protocols are doing with the cancer. The only way to know this is to go off the medication intermitantly or for good.

    If anyone has been in this situation and stopped the HDT, I would like to hear your experience.

    Thanks,

    Rich
  • I am a 38 yr old who was treated for endometriosis with 6 mos. of lupron. my body hasn't been the same since, 5 years later. is there a link between lupron & thyroid disfunction & infertility? (1 answer)
    I was healthy and active before going on Lupron (against my better judgement). During the time I was on it I experienced hot flashes, night sweats, waking up to got to bathroom, frequent urination, flaking of scalp skin, loss of hair, weight gain, and a foot injury that came out of nowhere. It's been 5 years since I've been on it and my symptoms have continued. I am now married and have been trying to get pregnant for 9 months without luck. We are being tested and the first results came back from blood work stating I have subclinical hypothyroidism and my FSH levels are at 15 (they should be no higher than 9ish for my age - 19 is post menopause). My periods which had always been regular, now occur anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks apart and the flow is different. My joints are in constant pain regardless of injections and therapy without any sustained injury and in the last 2 1/2 years I have shrunk 3/4"! I know there have been others who have experienced similar issues after using this drug. Have there been any direct links to it and thyroid or pituitary gland malfunctions - permanently? I have also heard there was/is/or is going to be a law suit against this drug. Any info or direction would be most helpful! Thanks!
  • Lupron and rheumatoid arthritis (1 answer)
    I took Lupron off and on for many years due to a medical condition and now my joints hurt so bad and lock and pop so bad. I took Lupron injections for a total of 24 months, could this be the cause if such pain in my joints and if so what can I do to prevent it from getting worse? And chronic breathing issues. I have to take ad air now and lots and lots of NSAIDs. Steroids seem to help My joint pain , breathing and digestive issues, and memory issues.



    Sorry had to edit my email address left out information and the length of time for injections was 24 months nit two, 4 - 6 month intramuscular injections.
  • Will joint pain, night sweats and hot flashes go way? (1 answer)
    I have joint pain in finger joints, wrists, elbows, severe in hips, ankles, feet, knees. I also have night sweats, hot flashes, stiffness and can't sleep long. I had three one month Lupron Depot shots followed by a three month dosage. The symptoms got really bad after the three month dosage. Will these symptoms subside and how long does it usually take?
  • I'm experiencing lack of strength and stamina while on luprondepot. i've had hdr with ebrt and september will be 6 mo. of lupron. i'm supposed to get 2 years of the drug but feel lousy. any thoughts?
    I'd like to stop taking Lupron Depot at the end of the 6 month period and forgo the entire 2 years of shots. My quality of life has greatly diminished since it's a struggle to do even mild exercise, and I'm concerned about heart complications and bone fractures while on the drug. I've been an active, fit guy for a 77-year old up until now. Anyone in my shoes who's had high density and external beam radiation combined with Lupron depot?

  • Positive interaction of casodex and saw palmetto
    July 2011: biopsy Gleason 7 for 2 of 24 (large number in Japan, done in a surgical room). Lupron + casodex (1 mont injection). PSA slowly declined. Minimal side effects, except for being horny for the first 10 days. Next was 3 months, side effects of severe night sweats and flush, but manageable. PSA below 1. Continued for 3 months, but severe sensitivity in breasts and other side effects made life so miserable, I stopped Lupron, but continued Casodex for a few more weeks. Found a British study that showed on/off treatment was maybe even better than continuous Lupron/Caodex. PSA 0.05 when stopped. Rose to 3.9 over the next nine months. MRI showed reduced prostate size and no lumps, but went back to Casodex for a few months. PSA below 1, so stopped again for a
    few months. Repeating cycle. Taking Doctor's Best Prostate Formula (with my doctor's nod (no harm, waste of money). But I found urination became easier.
    Now take saw palmetto in the morning and Doctor's Best at night. Even better results, no sweats, no hot flashes, but very surprising happy side effect, which has cheered my wife very much (and me, too). Much, much better than the time I tried Viagra and others after the biopsy, and at 2 cents a pill vs $20, a real deal. Good luck to all.

  • once user on Jan, 2, 2015:

    i found endep when i was taking it took me from mild depression to suicidal, i tried overdosing and ended up in a coma, as soon as i stopped taking it i found myself much better. endep i found invades your mind it's like you have no control. i was 31 years old at the time. after recently a finding out a friend was taking it and took her life recently i'd like to warn people of the dangers of it. speak with your doctor about a safer anti depressant. it's not like you have time to tell someone it just quickly takes over and before you know it your taking your own life and still to this day i'm very unsure about how it happened it was quick and everything was just so like i was not thinking for myself. this drug i believe should be taken of the market it is dangerous. once i was off the drug i regained myself and become much better
