    I take this with Lupron. I took Lupron for the first time 3 years ago. I was taking it monthly without Norethindrone and the hot flashes were horrible. As soon as I did my 6 months of Lupron my pain was back...I have to admit that I had NO pain while on the Lupron. 2 years after that I had my 2nd laproscopy and my condition was still really bad. About 6 months later I begged my new doctor to giv ... Show Full Comment

    I have used this medication since 1/6/16. I have had hot flashes, night sweets, a rash on back, mood swings, weight gain (15lbs). To me that is a lot of weight in a short period of time to gain that much weight. My pain has not changed at all. I spend most of my time in bed. The Lupron Depot shot is why I am taking this medication. I don't recommend taking Norethindrone or the Lupron Depot sho ... Show Full Comment

    Been taking this for 5 months; it really worked great the first two months, my pain was mostly gone. But during the third month, the pain gradually returned. Now I am back to needing ibuprofen daily, which seems to help less and less. Lupron sounds horrible, so I don't know what to try next. :(

    I take two 5mg tablets per day. I have used this medication for about 2 years now. In the beginning I had terrible hot flashes, my migraine headaches worsened, I still had break through bleeding and pain the first month so I actually took 3 pills per day for 1 month and then went back to 2 per day. I have strange side effects, I have a sort of dizzy feeling with it. I can tell when It is going to ... Show Full Comment

    I am on my second month with this medication and I'm not to pleased with it. This is the second time trying it & now i remember why I stopped. I have night sweats, bad mood swings and I still have pain. I still have to take Vicodin every day to help with pain. I have gained 10 lbs and feel swollen every day. Nothing fits me anymore and I feel miserable. I eat healthy and watch my intake ... Show Full Comment
