I have been on Lupron for about 9 months and along with other symptoms I have hsd increasing sleepnproblems (insomnia). I have now been diagnosed with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea ( OSP). Has this been a problem?, and if so, How has it been treated or resolved?
Is there a relationship beyween Lupron ADT for Prostate Cancer and sleep apnea?

Hello RWARNOLD. I'm not certain if I can answer your question. So, the best I might suggest is that, on top of this page, besides the words Drugs.com, is a search engine. Just enter the word Lupron. it will take you to that page, scroll down and you'll see side effects. Click on that and you'll see a vast array, of possibilities, different, side effects. Hope that you find it to be of some help. I do hope that all goes well for you. best wishes.
