    I think that all the guys taking Eligard (leuprolide acetate) experience some sort of side effect. Some guys experience mild symptoms and some go through the hell.
    In your recent threads, you have shown to be concerned in changing the drugs but the effects from these types of drugs are very similar, no matter which one you take. The nicest thing is that you can return to your previous drug if you do not feel well.
    Surely you can continue with Firmagon if such gives peace of mind.

    Wishing you well.

    Firmagon
    Hello rad,

    Just to let you know, after I completed a cycle of Firmagon followed by a vacation of a few months, I resumed the Firmagon. I had to put up with two shots on the same time. The doctor said if I had switched to, say, Lupron and gone back to the Firmagon, I would need the double shot.
