I had my first Gonapeptyl depot injection last week.
After a few hours, I realised my heart was racing noticeably (wasn't doing anything exciting ;-), just lazing on the sofa). I checked using a BP/HR cuff and my heart rate was 105, instead of the usual ~70 bpm.
It's stayed around 100 bpm ever since, even rising to between 125-150 for a period of 12hrs. My GP is monitoring me, but would like my consultant (who prescribed the Gonapeptyl) to re-think the treatment.
Has anyone else had similar side-effects with Gonapeptyl or any other GnRH agonist injections (Decapeptyl, Lupron, Zoladex etc.)?
Thanks & best wishes x
