I have a Gleason 9 and have been fully radiated. 58 years old. I've have strong reactions to the Lupron but found out accidentally and with a little experimenting with dose that I can reduce my hot flashes and night sweats to zero or almost zero.
It has required my using 24 mg of melatonin nightly 1/2 hour prior to bed. Side effect is being a bit tired the next day. If anyone else is using melatonin I would be interested in your side effects from Lupron or other hormone depot drugs. This is by the way from a nightly fight with the blankets and sheets coming off and on being to hot then too cold.
I increased the doseage till I could sleep all the way through the night less some BR trips. Seems to be working. I didn't take it one night and reverted back to a very bad night. Hopes this helps someone.
