More proof for my fight again Lupron! It had my heart beating at 41 bpm, I am so lucky to be here! Isn’t it great that they introduced these drugs back into the public? Don’t you feel safe now that these warnings are included in that fine print that you can’t read?
Drug Recalls, Alerts & Warnings

October 20, 2010

Eligard, Lupron, Synarel, Trelstar, Vantas, Viadur, Zoladex
gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists

The FDA asked manufacturers to add new warnings to labeling of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, a class of drugs primarily used to treat men with prostate cancer. The warnings would alert patients and their health care professionals to the potential risk of heart disease and diabetes in men treated with these medications. In May, the FDA said that a preliminary and ongoing analysis found that patients receiving GnRH agonists were at a small increased risk for diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and sudden death. The new labels will include updates in the Warnings and Precautions section about these potential risks.

Who really reads these warnings anyways? Don’t we trust our doctor and pharmacist to do that? I asked the doctor about the side effects but he didn’t warn me about the dangerous side of Lupron. Read my story:
