    I began taking Danocrine post-op in 1999. I just stopped taking it in March 2016 due to I am now post menopausal. I gained approx. 10-15 lbs. and voice has deepened a little however both of those side effects could be from my age and lifestyle. The drug was a God send for me.

    I took Danocrine in the early 90's to treat endometriosis. I was supposed to take it for about 9 months to "simulate pregnancy" by stopping my menstrual cycle long enough to "heal".

I immediately told my doctors they had to do something else. Surgery was done and all of my female organs were taken out and placed on 0.625 mg Premirin (replacement hormone). After 2 months I had a series of strokes. My weight is ... Show Full Comment
