    I have been on this shot for about 3 years now, and it's been a God sent for me. I had been having extremely heavy periods (one of which lasted 9 months), some months I would have more then one. The pain was unbearable. I missed a lot of work due to periods. I sometimes get night sweats now, but I can deal with that.

My dr thought I had fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed with chronic compartme ... Show Full Comment

    This drug should be taken off the market. IT is like putting posion into your body. It has been a year since I took my last shot and I am still suffering from the side effects of the shot. I finally had a GI dr that would agree with me that this med is terrible. He said he would only use it on cancer patients. I still suffer from VERY BAD anxiety and panic. I am always thinking something is wrong ... Show Full Comment
