Lupron or Zoladex?

Any opinions on this? Irv was just prescribed Zoladex but I've heard that Lupron has what seems like an easier administration of an injection in the muscular tissue of the hip, rather than Zoladex whereby a port is inserted in the upper abdomen and a pellet is inserted under the skin.

Which would be more uncomfortable? Which is the more favourable in terms of side effects (I'm guessing that would be the same).

Any opinions on this would be appreciated.

Rhonda

Re: Lupron or Zoladex?

Ohhh...Just found out that Dr. Fleshner prefers Eligard because it's a smaller needle. We know somebody who was on Eligard and got terrible arthritis in his back from it...and it didn't take long either.

So....Eligard vs. Lupron now. Oh my....

Any opinions??
