 1  Endometriosis Never ending side effects. I had this drug injected in me with hopes it would stop Endometriosis spreading. It caused me to eventually have to give up my career as a child psychologist to being totally disabled with Endometriosis growths and fibromyalgia, RA, muscle spasms and ptsd. It never leaves your system and attaches to your dna and changes it. I miscarried at 16 weeks after my last injection 4 months before I was pregnant. Iíve never been pregnant since then in 1995. I am now on stron pain meds just to function and spend many days in bed. Do not take this drug poison under any circumstances. It will ruin your health for life and not cure what the docs say. They get paid off to prescribe it by big pharma. Do not take this medicine!! Itís pure poison. F 49 6 months

 1  Uterine Fibroids Hot flashes, cramping, nausea, severe abdominal pain, migraines, insomnia, mood swings I did not listen to the warnings of those who got the shot. I'be been regretting my decision for the past 2 months. I had zero side affects for the first 3 weeks. Then came the hot flashes, migraines, and mood swings. But wait, it doesn't stop there. If I was working while on this medicine, I would not be able to do my job. The severe abdominal pain and nausea didn't come until the end of the 2nd month. I am in a constant state of sickness and cannot leave the house. To top it all off, my fibroid did not shrink or change, as I was promised. Now I am miserable for nothing. Please, please, take my warning and do not take this medicine. It will dramatically impact your daily living and not bring you results. F 28 3 months

 1  To prep for hysterectomy Sick to my stomach the whole time, nausea, panic attacks, anxiety,depression, hot flush, cold sweat, blurry vision, lost appetite, back pain, I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE This has been the worst 3 months of my life, my gynecologist recommended this poison 3 months ago due to my anemia and fibroids, well let me tell you that didn't work 2 weeks after I have lupron, I had an emergency hysterectomy because I was losing to much blood. First I was happy that finally I had the surgery then I realized that I still have lupron on my system for anothe 2 months and a half.. it has been so difficult, this side effects are not joke... when they tells you the you might get this side effects IT MEANS "you will get it for sure" I'm over the 3 months now and I still have this side effects .. can't wait to be normal again. I haven't worked all this 3 months due to all this side effects Please please please don't do lupron ask your doctor for more opcion, this medicine is a killer F 45 3 months

 4  Endometriosis Hot flashes, headaches, fatigue, break outs I started taking lupron about 2 months ago. The sytoms are no were as bad as I thought they were going to be! I kept refusing to get the shot just because I was so scared of the symptoms until my last surgery. I've had two surreys in the last 7 months, so I figured it was time to do something cause I want to be able to have kids. But, the worse part is the hot flashes. At first it wasn't bad and now I have them like every day and all night long sometimes. And my face is starting to break out cause I think the medicine is starting to kick in, but it really does make the pain go away. I would rather deal with the symptoms then the pain any day .

 1  Endometriosis All the common "temporary" side effects of menopause; plus some I was only life-threatening allergic reaction the year following treatment. My autoimmune system went wacky. Heart issues, nerve damage, I began passing out from hypothyroidism. Years later I was dx; with a thyroid goiter.and a brain aneurysm.Too many other Dx to list. Please do not use Leuprolide Acete / Lupron Depot! You may not get to live long enough to regrete it. They "Lied by Omission" Left out important information like it is an ".Antineplastic that kills "Healthy Cells as well as Cancerous Cells". They also said all side-effects are temporary. LIE!, LIE!, LIE, I was only 32. Why has the FDA not restricted this drug for Cancer patients only??? Another Thing For President Trump to Make Right... F 54 6 months

 3  Endometriosis Skin became very oily, hot flashes, insomnia, weight gain, mood swings, brain fog, eyes produced more oil in which I had to switch to daily contacts I was diagnosed with endometrioses in July 2016. My options were either getting a hysterectomy or being put on Lupron for 6-12 months. I opted for Lupron. I stopped bleeding altogether. The first month of being on Lupron increased my endometriosis pain severely. I had bad cramps/pain for the entire month. By month 2 the menopause symptoms kicked in. I was put on anti-depressants to help with the mood swings. I have gained about 15lbs while on Lupron. I do cramp while on Lupron, but it's no where near the pain I had before getting on it. It has completely stop my bleeding and definitely reduced the cramping and pain. I went from wearing 2 week wear contacts to having to wear daily contacts, because the oil my eyes produce makes my contacts blurry daily. My optometrist told me some women in menopause have this issue. I just had my 6 month apt to determine whether or not to extend it to 12 months. I have decided to get off and start a continual BC in hopes the bleeding will stay at bay. I was told if I start bleeding, my options again will be Lupron or hysterectomy. All in all, this medicine does help. But, for me, it gave me some pretty ugly side affects. I'm hoping I will not have to go back on it. I wouldn't discourage anyone from being on it, while this may be a last option before surgery. But, if you do consider starting this medicine, I recommend doing your research and just be aware/prepared for the possible side effects that may come with it for you. F 30 6 months

LUPRON DEPOT  (LEUPROLIDE ACETATE):  Leuprolide is used to treat advanced prostate cancer in men. It is not a cure. Most types of prostate cancer need the male hormone testosterone to grow and spread. Leuprolide works by reducing the amount of testosterone that the body makes. This helps slow or stop the growth of cancer cells and helps relieve symptoms such as painful/difficult urination. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of treatment.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
