I read read recently that lupron increased deaths approx. 15% in men taking it!! Is this a true fact??
Lupron is used in men to treat the symptoms of prostate cancer. Leuprolide (lupron) overstimulates the body's production of hormones, which causes production to shut down temporarily. It reduces the amount of testosterone in men.
In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make.
See https://www.drugs.com/pro/lupron-depot.html - look under Contraindications, warnings, and precautions.
See also http://www.nci.nih.gov/cancertopics/types/prostate for up to date and accurate information on prostate cancer.
