Decapeptyl side effects

Wildgoose1 profile image

Hi everyone..I have just had second one month injection of decapeptyl. I suppose the big side effects are the hot flushes. However I also seem to have lost my appetite to the extent I have already lost weight and I also notice I have a dry mouth. Having read the patient information leaflet I see these are listed as uncommon side effects and I wondered if anyone else had experienced them?? I look forward to hearing from other ladies out there..

Hi, I bled for about 10 days a fortnight after the first injection and had all my usual endometriosis symptoms. I understand this is expected. The bleeding has stopped now.
