Question for those on Lupron: I was advised to take calcium / vitamin D supplements when I was given a six-month Lupron shot a year ago (prior to radiation.) I was not given advice on whether or when to stop calcium with Vit. D. A year later, I’m wondering if I should or could stop. Do I take calcium forever? Has anyone gotten advice on this. Thanks.

That’s a great question to ask your oncologist. I was on Zoladex (it’s similar to Lupron) for 4 months. I was told I could stop taking calcium once I stopped taking Zoladex. Best to ask your doc. Wishing you all the best.

I was told the same thing except I just drink milk instead of taking pills. Actually my Dr never told me how long either.

I had two injections 3 months apart and also took calcium and vitamin d. Doctor did not say anything about discontinuing. When I had my first PSA test and follow up appointment, I asked and he agreed I did not need to take any more.
