I have also gained 25 pounds since my shot in November of last year!! I was given the 3 month injection of Lupron.
I have been on every single birth control for 16 years now!!
I have Endometriosis and my Fibriods have grown back!!
This last injection was the worse thing that I could have done!! The hot flashes,joint pain, weight gain and dryness!!
I'm just waiting for it to get out of my system!!
i believe that suzanne66 gave the best (scientific) answer 8 years ago, although it probably doesn't mean much to the rest of us... i am taking the 3-month cycle of lupron shots for prostate cancer... i always imagined that the weight gain was tied to the decrease in testosterone necessary to starve the cancer and lower one's PSA... that has certainly worked in my case and lowered my PSA from 248 to 0.49... i have also gained 20 pounds... my only side effects have hourly hot flashes and fatigue... the hot flashes affect my sleep, and while i'm not sleeping, hey, let's see what's in the fridge... my theory is that, if i could sleep more, i'd, by extension, eat less... i don't know what else they prescribe lupron for, but in my case it's certainly doing its job and i have no real complaints...
i've only been on the shots for 5 months and have not yet experienced any side effects that would make me wish that hadn't started the treatment...
