The last few weeks I have been experiencing some side effects. Mostly headache, fatigue and insomnia...

Something else that has been bothering me is the "ingrown" hairs in my armpits. They are appearing one after another and they go away on their own. Mostly under one arm and not the other but I did have one that felt like it was forming on the right side, other than that its all been on the left side.

Can the Lupron be the reason these ingrowns are showing up? Its like a volcano under there and I have no idea why it would "just happen" after not having a problem with it before.

Thanks in advance..

Hi SpaceyStacy,

I don't have any experience with Lupron, but I wanted to your post back up to the first page with the hope that someone else will have an answer for you.

hi Stacey,

I'm not getting ingrown hairs in my armpits from Lupron, but I'm noticing the hair on my legs is going funny, I have a major case of chicken skin. I can believe it's Lupron, as my hair is also falling out.

And I too have headaches daily, fatigue, disorientation (so bad I'm afraid to drive sometimes !) and that's in addition to the pain from the endo and cysts. I don't know if anyone has anything good to say about it.

I am so going to tell my Dr. about Lupron, so that he never does this to another woman without thinking first. The 'cure', if you can say that without laughing, is worse than the problem.

I also used Lupron for 4 months. I did not have the ingrown hairs. I did have many other things with Lupron headaches, joint
aches, I couldn't remember a thing and I'm still working on that.
I had bleeding with my Lupron shots...they did not work for me!!!
I felt like I had PMS all the time. I also lost a great deal of hair.
In the end I still had LSH/LSO kept cervix so it just gave me some time--- but not great time.

Thanks all for replying and thanks Karen for bumping it up.. lol

Ive been noticing the past few days of the joint pain. I thought my back was acting up but my hips and knees even bother me...

I went to the Dr last night about my cyst on the arm that decided to erupt after YEARS of having it.. she said she didnt think it had anything to do with the Lupron, but I still think it "might" only because these things are happening after the fact.

I am supposing that the effects of Lupron are an ongoing thing and continue or even get worse through the time of using it. I got a three month shot on the 9th of September. It stopped my bleeding finally but now all this other stuff is cropping up.. I am assuming I havent seen the end of the effects of Lupron.

I just hope they do go away after time. I have read some boards with women who call themselves Lupron Survivors.. now THAT is scary!!!!

Thanks all

I think my lupron shots are finally kicking in after the second one. The bulge by my navel is not as firm as it was.

I haven't had any ingrown hairs and I don't think I'm losing hair, but I'm sure tired of hot flashes.

Lupron is a disaster in my opinion and way too many doctors are too quick to want to use it. It works for some that is for sure, but others it doesn't and the side effects are...well....nasty. I took it with a combo chemo thing and my hair was a mess, I had to "shave" more often then my husband, it made me hurt, it made me sick...They wanted to try 2 more shots.....i just couldn't do it anymore. We did just the chemo portion and I was fine.....I think DR's need to tell their patients about the side effects instead of having to read or experience about them later.

Obvisouly it doesn' t happen to everyone, but most I know who have used it HATED it!!
