Investigation into Lupron Side Effects (Leuprolide Acetate)

Messages Sent So Far
The purpose of this petition is to warn others regarding the drug Lupron (Leupolide Acetate) mfg. by Takeda/Abbott Pharmaceuticals in the hope that further long-term safety studies are done before it disables or kills more women. This drug was originally marketed to treat prostate cancer patients but now is widely used for the treatment of endometriosis, infertility, fibroids/ovarian cysts and even precocious puberty.

Many women are continuing to suffer the side effects long after taking their last dose even though their doctor and the pharmaceutical company states that the side effects should go away within 3-6 months. Side effects include but are not limited to: hot flashes, memory loss, tachycardia, hematura, hypotension, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety, depression, Vitamin D deficiency, constant gnawing bone/joint pain, osteoarthritis, osteopenia, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, autoimmune diseases, blood disorders, cancer and many others including death and yet not one long term study has been conducted.

It is devastating to us that we agreed to take an FDA approved drug under the care of our physician whom we trusted only to find ourselves sicker than you could imagine ---- in pain and unable to get the proper treatment or even believed that Lupron caused our problems.

We hereby request that an investigation be undertaken into the short term and long term effects of Lupron on women. We further request that all outcomes and results of such trials be released and published so that both patients and doctors alike may have the benefit of all the information regarding this drug.

I took these shots between1998 and the early 2000's. I have had progressive bone/joint and muscle problems since stopping this medication. I now have all-over osteoarthritis. No one in my family has had this problem. All major joints are affected. Concerned that I am heading toward total disability. I was in my early 40's when I started these shots and bone/ joint-wise, I was having no problems. How do you stop this from progressing to being bedridden? This stuff needs to be taken off the market.

I took Lupron over a year ago. I have horrible pain in my legs, my teeth are falling out. Someone should be responsible. My iron is low. My blood count low.

My life will never be the same. And for anyone who doesn't believe our government would allow us to be harmed like this, come talk to me personally. Or ask any vaccine-injured-child's parents.

When surgery, radiation, etc. fail to arrest prostate cancer and PSA is rising androgen deprivation therapy is often the first method employed to lower PSA and delay onset of clinical metastasis. Steroids (DES) and estrogen were effective prior to Lupron but did increase the risk of blood clots, liver damage, and heart attack. Lupron doesn't produce blood clots it merely makes us stupid, fat, lazy, with breasts, brittle bones, and depressed. Estradiol transdermal patches are a cost effective and rational alternative that greatly lowers blood clot and liver risk; used by millions of women and tens of thousand male to female transsexuals. Breast development may remain a side effect but bones stay strong and other Lupron side effects including cost are mitigated.
