I haven't had any real side effects that concern me except insomnia. But my pain is horrible. I am taking it because I have Failed Ablation Syndrome and Adenomyosis. Stopping the ovaries from releasing eggs is supposed to alleviate the pain. It is so bad right now, I was wondering if the pain is meant to get worse before getting better?
LoBro1313; AT FIRST GLANCE HERE IS ONE OF THE WARNINGS ABOUT INCREASED PAIN. tHIS IS A COPY AND PASTE FROM THIS WEBSITE IT DOES SAY THAT THE PAIN CAN GET WORSE ALONG WITH OTHER THINGS BUT NORMALLY IT IS JUST FOR A FEW WEEKS. AND YOU SAY YOU HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR 7 WEEKS. HERE IS THE COPY/PASTE ((( Important safety information:
Certain hormone levels may increase during the first few weeks of treatment with Lupron Depot. This may cause you to experience worsening symptoms or onset of new symptoms (eg, bone pain; blood in the urine; difficulty urinating; burning, numbness, or tingling) during the first few weeks of treatment. Patients with growths on or near the spine or spinal cord, or a blockage of the bladder or ureters may be at greater risk of developing serious and sometimes fatal complications. Contact your doctor if any new or worsened symptoms occur while using Lupron Depot.***** ALSO Labor, after reading as much of this as I have I'M A BIT UNCOMFORTABLE AND WOULD LIKE YOU TO CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR WHEN I WAS STILL WORKING IN THE PHARMACY I DISPENCED LOTS OF THIS MEDICATION AND RARELY HAD ANY WOMAN WITH many PROBLEMS AND YOU MIGHT BE THE ONE THAT IS. ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER IT CAN MAKE BONES BRITTLE. so for your sake, dear would you please call your doctor. And see what is going on or if this is normal and if you would like I would love to hear back from you about what your doctor had to say. my rule of thumb is better to be safe than sorry. I would love to know because this is so much different. I am really sorry that I can't be of more help than this but I really feel you need to tell the doctor about what is going on. good luck and looking forward to hearing from you. Chuck1957 ps remember it is late Thursday where I'm at so you have to get that call in soon. have a good day. Chuck. If myself or someone else here can be of help please bookmark this site that I feel is much better than many I have been on so you can ask for help or help others when you're up to it. ENJOY MY FRIEND.
