Thanks Kevin. I have always had a low tolerance for medicine. And thru the years i found that cutting the prescription back gave me more of a desired effect rather than overkill with meds. Although this is my first with this kinda medicine. Dr prescribed me colestipol for diarhea years ago. He said take 1 pill 2 times a day. i couldnt go for a week. i started cutting pill in half. i got it down to 1/8 pill which stopped diarhea without constipation. however now i have constipation. i was told to take 1 teaspoon of this laxative. I take 1/8 teaspoon. works good for me. Just saying to me not one pill or treatment fits all. These were just a few examples, I have many more. I have learned something here . Appears to me this treatment is not a cure just a temporary set back for the cancer cells.

Thing thats gets me I was taking testosterone shots for low testosterone when i got cancer. Thats another story.

Thanks for your reply

Lupron is a suppressor, it does not kill prostate cancer cells like chemotherapy nor remove them like surgery does.

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer 2 years ago .. only had 1 shot of Lupron .. then 20 radiation treatments.. that knock my PSA down below 0.5..for a year or so.. The mind is the most important sex organ.. at 84 it has been a wonderful life.. and its still going strong..
