Effects of Zoladex

The Lupron shot that I get stops the body from producing testosterone. Because of almost no testosterone in my system I get tired easily, I believe my muscle strength isn’t what it was pre cancer. I get hot flashes And no sex drive – most of the typical side effects. But if it slows down or stops the cancer growth I believe those are a small price to pay.

Thanks for the info. I agree, the side effects are worth it. Right now the plan is I’ll stop taking Zoladex after this month. Hopefully the tiredness and weakness will subside. Just wondering how long that may be.

@jap57 You perfectly described my experience with Lupron. My six-month shot was in December, so the effects should start diminishing in June. Worth it. This will pass.
