Reviews for Synarel

For Endometriosis "I used Synarel twice years apart after major clean out of my endometriosis and it worked quite well at suppressing further growth. I was put on it after the major surgeries were preformed and i was able to get 2 good years out of each 6 month course without major issues. I will say it was blamed for 2 stress fractures in my feet (2 years apart) due to loss of calcium but healed ok after being air casted 6 weeks. Only drawback from Synarel was the drug induced menopause which the hot flashes were SEVERE..no periods for 8 months from each drug course was wonderful."

For Endometriosis "Synarel worked well for preventing endometriosis, but some of the side effects appear to be irreversible. Since taking this drug over 15 years ago, I gained 55 pounds while on the prescription which I have been unable to lose and also developed a bad case of rosacea during that time. Definitely check out the possible side effects before taking any medication."

For Endometriosis "Synarel has been a god send for me in many ways. It helped with pain and had much fewer side effects than depo lupron. I felt like myself again while taking the synarel and it helped suppress the endo for over 2 years."
