 1  Fibroids, heavy bleeding I am taking Lupron pre-hysterectomy. This DID NOT stop my periods as it was supposed to, though they weren't as heavy as they were before Lupron. Every once in a while I'd have a sudden, but brief and manageable onset. I just got my fourth and final shot last weekend, and 4 days ago I started having the worst symptoms ever (just after being informed my surgery would be delayed). I can't even leave my house now for fear of a gross, embarrassing mess. A lifetime of heavy bleeding has rendered me anemic; any effort I have put into fighting it since my diagnosis probably went out the window in the past three days. I am so weakened I have slept almost all day. F 44 4 months

 1  Stage 4 Prostate Cancer Extreme hot flashes and sweats every 3 hours. Extreme pain in intestines. Bone and joint pain. Complete loss of sex drive. Shrunken testicles. I felt like I had a bad virus all of the time. Poison! Even my Oncologist agreed it was poison. I quit taking Lupron and stopped all treatment. I am using diet and supplements with the guidance of a nutritionist. I would rather have nature take its course then go through Lupron treatment. Lupron should be banned! M 70 1 years

 1  Heavy periods Estrogen dom/brcancer Lupron should be banned and makers should be sued. How can doctors dole this out so easily and freely?! I later found out there were other better options for my conditions. Apparently it's a money maker. Horrible pain whole body - extreme weight gain - mood swings - the list is so long. I immediately felt like. 99 yr old and wished i was dead. I still have inability to move some joints and pain after 3 years is just as bad. Doctors claim it is impossible that Lupron can stay in your system that long, well, they didn't get the shot. I had two shots and my life has never been the same. How are they still able to give this to people?! Every day is miserable. I wish there was something we could do. Nobody believes me. Lupron should be illegal and the company that made it should be sued. F 48 0 days

 3  stage 4 Breast Cancer hair thinning (50% so far), painful hand joints in the am, night sweats, jaw pain when I open my mouth, diarrhea every morning, depression. The up side is my tumor markers are back to normal, tumor shrunk and disappeared. I'm only on this drug to induce menopause and save my life. The alternative could bring the cancer back. If this were not the case, I would have stopped taking it already, the reviews I've seen are also horrendous. F 49 4 months

 1  prostate cancer Where do i start,anxiety,depression,huge around middle, tinnitus, muscle and joint aches, high cholesterol, lethargy so tired,nasal congestion, headaches, changes in taste and smell.shrunken nuts, no sex for 4 years, boobs with lumps in. This stuff can change your life, you will want your old self back. Some men it works without side effects great for them,but it is not a one size fits all drug,as many on here know to their cost. I love life but lupron takes all joy out of it.Yes it lowers psa and hopefully keeps you alive,but i did not expect so many side effects and after being off the stuff for more than 2years i do not think things will get better.It does not seem to me that lupron ever leaves your system,it remains in some way. The bottom line is if you have no choice take it,but take as little as you can to remain who you are and stay alive.This is just my opinion on my experience on lupron, get the full facts for yourself on lupron if you find yourself being told you need it, I hope that you do not.

 1  IVF Fatigue, exhaustion, depression Had to take for 14 days before IVF cycle and another 14 days after. Hate it. Makes me completely exhausted, cannot function during the day, have to lay down and take naps. Depressed, weepy, no motivation F 38 14 days
 1  Prostate cancer ADT along with radiation Absolute hell. Clinical depression, anxiety, fatigue, dizziness close to the point of passing out, massive loss of strength, muscle tone and definition, loss of body hair, total loss of interest in sexual intimacy. Testicular shrinkage, neuropathy in fingertips. This sh*t needs to be banned by the FDA. Quality of life issues far outweigh the medical utility of this drug to the point that I'm sure its maker spends large amounts of money covering up the lives lost due to suicide caused by the depression this garbage causes. As many on here have related, it is truly the devils drug. M 58 12 months

 1  Endometriosis Worsening of anxiety,mood swings, hot flashes that will turn into cold sweats(nausea tied into it)awful bone joint and nerve pain,tingly numbness,insomnia,lack of day time energy. I never comment on these things but i had to. Just to stress that no one should ever even entertain the thought of this drug let alone take it. December was suppose to be my very last injection(6th month)and i refused. Itís so infuriating to me that i was never informed on how much of a risk i was truly taking by agreeing to under go this monthly treatment. Not only did it NOT take my pain away..the pain that was the whole reason i was even put on lupron to take care of in the first place... but my pain and mental anguish is so much worse then when i started out. Iím a little over a month into completion and i havenít slept in TWO DAYS! I am not exaggerating.. not so much as a cat nap in days. And thatís with me taking several OTC sleep meds! I have never been awake this long in my life. That..and the severe anxiety,nerve,bone,and joint pain and shortness of breath is torture. The many other side effects i can handle..these for me are by far the worst😔I was wondering if anyone could please tell me what to expect in the months after lupron? I havenít been able to find anyoneís experiences each month after treatment.. Iím just hoping it gets better then this cause Iím really having a hard time seeing a light at the end of this tunnel.

LUPRON  (LEUPROLIDE ACETATE):  Leuprolide is used to stop early puberty (precocious puberty) in children. It helps to delay sexual development (such as growth of the breasts/testicles) and the start of menstrual periods. It also helps slow down early bone growth to increase the likelihood of reaching normal adult height. Leuprolide works by decreasing the amount of sex hormones that a child's body makes (estrogen in girls, testosterone in boys).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
