I'm just coming to the end of my first month on Zolodex & Tibolone. Throughout the month, I have had a nearly permanent head ache (yesterday being the worst day). Has anyone else experienced this? I have made sure that I'm drinking enough water, but have also been quite stressed this month (maybe that hasn't helped).

I know I could possibly be reading into more, but as this is still all new to me, I don't know what is 'normal' (& I know we're all different).

I've had a course of decapeptyl and a course of prostap (both similar to zoladex). I had banging headaches in the first month on both drugs but they stopped after the first few weeks.

Mine have started to ease now, haven't had to take any pain killers for a couple of days 🤞🏻. I've felt like I'd got a permanent hangover!


I had my 2nd injection 2 days ago after my 1st injection, straight away awful side effects hot flushes, anxiety which I already have but is 100 x worse. Crying at drop of a hat and the headaches oh my I can't cope. I suffer migraines and my migraine meds don't take the pain away it more of a sinus headache I have heat and steam relieve the headache but it quickly comes back. I do not think I will be having the 3rs injection as this is awful. I am struggling to cope
