Hi everyone, I just wanted to know if anyone else was getting the same side effects from these drugs as me. I had a Zoladex injection approx 4 weeks ago to try and help with my endometriosis. I had a failed embryo transfer so my doctor wanted to try this before I have a frozen transfer. I started the Buserelin injections last Tuesday and, although the hot flushes are horrendous, by far the worst side effect I’m getting is heart palpitations. I have just had a sleepless night because all I can feel is my heart pounding so hard in my chest. I literally feel like I’m going to have a heart attack! It’s sending my anxiety through the roof because I’m scared there’s something wrong. Has anyone else experienced this? I can’t stand much more of it, it’s horrible.

I didn’t take zolaex but I did take Buserelin. On the Buserelin, I also suffered hot flushes and had many sleepless nights, which is unusual for me as I never usually wake up in the night at all. I found the distruption to my sleep the hardest part especially whilst working. Hang in there, hopefully you don’t have much longer to go on those drugs. X
Hi Diane, thanks for your reply. A bit of an update, I’ve had to stop the Buserelin injections as the side effects were too severe. The heart palpitations I am getting are not normal apparently so my doctor has told me to stop. I am starting on oestrogen tablets straight away so fingers crossed that will make me feel better. I just hope it doesn’t mess anything up when it comes to the embryo transfer x
