    I don’t usually leave reviews but I felt this was important to because there are so many unpleasent experiences written about this drug, but on balance I can honestly say it’s not that bad. I did not want to take Zoladex after reading up on it, I was very nervous of the side effects and I reluctantly started monthly injections for 4 months in preparation for surgery. The actual injection it’s ... Show Full Comment

    I had severe endometriosis and at age 28, underwent lap & laser, then 3 months of Zoladex, then a second lap & laser to get rid of any remaining endo. Side effects were tough - total menopause at age 28! However, the treatment worked like a charm and it was worth every minute. I followed a totally organic diet throughout and actually lost 10 lb while on this drug. I then fell pregnant w ... Show Full Comment

    I was on it for 6 months and it worked great. If you have Endometriosis and your doctor wants to put you on this I would recommend it. I have pain 3 weeks out of the month and for 6 months i had no pain at all. It is not the best felling when you are getting the shot in your stomach but i would do it again in a heart beat. Hope this helps anyone who is going to have this treatment.

    It was so wonderful living pain free while on this injection, having no periods was a bonus too. The only hassle was finding medical staff experienced in administering the injection and found going to the local hospital quite good. Also asked for general anes. cos do not like needles, and this one is big!! The hot flushes were a bit of a pain, but got used to them and prefered them to pain.
