How Long Do Lupron Shot Side Effects Last?
I had a 3 month Lupron shot for prostate cancer 5 months ago. I still have the hot flashes every 15 minutes to 1/2 hour by the clock. I`m also still chemically castrated. What`s up with that?
The effects of the Lupron shot could potentially last several months, even 6-12 months.
