Lurpon Side Effects Inventory

  • hot flashes? check
  • headaches? check
  • "changes in mood"? definite check
  • vag dryness - not yet
  • decreased libido? check

Other interesting observations:

  • my anxiety is THRU THE FREAKIN ROOF!
  • I have some pretty nasty mid-cycle spotting.... almost a period, but not quite
  • I am tired, ALL the TIME
  • my sleep patterns are off. I'm having trouble getting to sleep at night, but I CANNOT get out of bed in the mornings. I've been late to work every day this week.

Of the above "interesting observations", none are listed as official "common side effects". BUT, I have seen lots of commentary similar on the web, via message boards, blogs, etc.

And just think, only 22 more weeks..... *bangs head against wall*

I had all of those side effects on Lupron too. Mine peaked at about a week out and then things got better. I also had some insomnia on about days 6-8 of taking it. Good Luck!

My IVF drugs give me all these side effects and more. Infertility bites, huh?

I'm here through NCLM and am really enjoying your blog. Please stop by and say hello if you get a chance! :)

lupron sucks.
I just hate anything that messes with my already changeable mood/s.

Duck said...

Well I'm just taking a guess here, but you must be on lurpon or syneral or superfact? one of those give me menopause it will be so much fun drugs.
Yes hell. I was on syneral for 12 long long months for endo treatment.... and 6 long weeks during an ivf cycle.
I feel your pain.

All side effects I had on Lupron too. The headaches were the worst ones for me.

Geohde said...

Yep...sounds like lupron s/e to me.

Hope the next 22 weeks fly by and nothing gets any more unpleasant than it already is,


Tanya said...

Yech! That sounds so NOT fun. I hope things get back to normal for you soon.

hi Beth
I'm here from NaComLeavCom

Sorry Lupron is giving you awful side effects.
I don't know much about endo but I know enough that it really sucks ... the joy out of everything too.
I wish you all the best with your treatment schedule and post surgery recovery.

My Little Drummer boys
warm regards
