I GOT my monthly shot of FIRMAGON today---my current PSA is 0.26 ---it is now two years of monthly FIRMAGON shots. (STARTING PSA was 53.99). THE PA who sees me every month suggests I switch to ELIGARD--4 month shot. Thus I would only need three more shots to make it to NOV. of next year vs. 12 more shots of FIRMAGON. The PA stated the drugs are basically the same. (HE said the decision is mine to make) I WAS TOLD I HAD TO be on 3 years of Hormone shots when I started.
Looking forward to replies regarding this dilema.
