Has anyone suffered with severe headaches after having a Decapeptyl 11.25mg injection? I had my first 3 month injection 2 and a half weeks ago and have been suffering with an extreme headache for 2 days now. Is this a side effect to be expected? 🙁
Decapeptyl injection: Has anyone suffered... - Endometriosis UK
I had mine today
I was warned about this.
It’s just a hormone headache fear not! When did the headache kick in?
I say “just” but apparently it’s BLINDING Hope you’re ok gorgeous xx
Hi 👋🏼, thanks for your reply. I did think it was a side effect of the injection but this definitely feels like a migraine 🙁. I guess the effects of the injection is now kicking in and my estrogen levels are now falling. My headache migraine started on Monday afternoon and it is BLINDING ... I hope this doesn’t last for 3 months!! 😱😱😱
I hope you don’t get the headache side effect.
Take care xxxx
I had this from zoladex! Mine lasted a week or so, and felt like a migraine. It did clear, and after that I was fine for the rest of my treatment course. Are you taking HRT?
👋🏼Hi, no the doctor said to see how I go before starting HRT as I may not need it. I’m only on a course of one 3 month injection to see if it shrinks my fibroid to eliminate the need of a hysterectomy. But this headache is something else!!! 🙁xx
Yes, dreadful headaches too, it is listed as a side effect. Coming off the Decapeptyl also takes up to six weeks for it to wear off.
Do you think the headaches last for the 3 month duration? Or will they come and go? I really hope it’s the latter 🙁🙁 I’ve never experienced such an evil headache in all my life. Another day off work for me today xx
With my first injection, it was only into secon week ofbit being in my system I started with the headaches, nausea. Once in to the third week, felt better. Then coming off the drug to come out of the body.
As you suggest hormonal changes are the key; just think of what it’s doing, turning everything off.
I couldn’t face anything further after years of on off treatment various forms. Early January I had a complete pelvic clearance. Because the endometriosis had stuck the ovaries to the uterus and that to the bowel, also had a bowel shave! Feeling a lot better now but had migraine from hell last week... good luck. Drink plenty of water, stick some earplugs in, I put a comforting woolly hat on and go to bed in a very dark room.
Can anyone tell me roughly how long for each person it took after the 3 month Decapeptyl injection for their period to return? Driving myself insane, our little girl was born still 2 years ago and after lots of operations, tests and appointments. This is our last hurdle before we can try again before a hysterectomy!
