Lupron Recall

Did Abbott Labs Conceal health hazards associated with the drug Lupron?

According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Lupron has potential safety issues; but Abbott Labs has not included a warning label concerning long-term health problems for those who regularly take the drug. A lawsuit has accused Abbott Labs of not doing the proper testing of the drug before asking the FDA to approve Lupron.

If you, or a loved one, have been taking Lupron and are now suffered from severe side effects caused by this hormone treatment, you might qualify to file a lawsuit.

This drug was meant to be taken as a relief of prostate cancer (Men) and endometriosis (Women). So many people are now suffering with other problems that people are requesting Lupron to be taken off the market.

The side effects that have been documented as a direct result of taking Lupron are as follows:

  • Acne breakouts
  • Abnormal facial hair growth
  • Hot flashes
  • Dizziness or drowsiness
  • Dry vagina
  • Vaginal discomfort or bleeding
  • Breast swelling or tenderness
  • Lack of desire or inability to have sex
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Chills or clammy skin
  • Pain in the testicle
  • Memory loss
  • Aching joints or muscles
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Depression
  • Chronic muscle pain
  • Back pain or weakness
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Urine with blood in it
  • Vomiting
  • Severe headaches
  • Decreasing of hematocrit
  • Decreasing of hemoglobin
  • Bone density changes
  • Thyroid problems
  • Loss of the sense of taste
  • Loss of the sense of smell
  • Uncontrollable bladder
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Inability to move parts of your body
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Stinging, irritation, bruising or soreness at injection site
  • Fainting or light-headedness
  • Pain during urination
  • High blood sugar symptoms: thirst or hunger, frequent urination, dry mouth or skin, fatigue, vision changes or weight reduction.
  • Abrupt numbness or loss of strength, particularly on one side
  • Trouble speaking
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Chest tension, spreads to arm and shoulder
  • Numbness in legs or feet
  • Allergic reactions: inflammation of lips, mouth, tongue, throat, face or itchy, red skin/rash

If you, or a family member, has taken Lupron in hopes of combating a serious disease like prostate cancer or endometriosis; but are now suffering some of the awful side effects Lupron is known to cause, you may be eligible to seek compensation through the court system.

The side effects listed above are common from those who have taken Lupron. The manufacturer tried to hide these risks to your health by not performing the proper tests needed before releasing it into the general population. Since Abbott Labs did not include a warning label on Lupron, your pain and suffering is not your fault. It is time to take advantage of your rights and pursue compensatory relief.

Lupron has turned many people’s lives into a nightmare. You are not alone. Get yourself, or your loved one, the compensation you deserve.

  12. Chealsy Summerlin says:

    I was on Lupron last year (from May, June and July). I had suffered severe hot flashes, night sweats, severe fatigue, severe depression (I was having suicidal thoughts), drastic mood swings. The doctor who administrated it wouldn’t listen to what I had to say. I followed up with a different doctor and told him about the side effects. I have other things going on with my health and I am not sure if it is related to the Lupron.

  13. I was only 12 years old when I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and Adnomyosis. My doctor put me on birth control and Lupron to help “combat” the Endometriosis. He told me that any side effects were temparary and once I was off the shots I should return to normal. I was FREAKING 12 years old!!! My body had not even fully matured yet here this doctor was giving me drugs to put me in a state of menopause to stop further tissue growth from the endometriosis. I was on this drug from 12 years old till I was 18 and a total hysterectomy was required as the endometriosis got so bad that my uterus turned to mush and flipped over on it’s self and my Overies were as hard as rocks. Both tubes twisted so bad there was no saving any of it. Here I am 32 years old, I have so many issues I just gave up.. I live in my bedroom now where I feel there isn’t much hope for me. I watch my family struggle and can’t even help them. I have had so many digestive issues that it takes me up to a month to digest a meal I eat today. The amount of bone density loss is rediculous as I have painful bone and muscle cramps daily. Lupron not only took my quality of life from me, it derailed my healing from endo and I can no longer have children….yeah that desicion was taken away from me when I was 12 years old and Dr Shrum decided to take his drug reps advice and push it as if he were selling cocaine for the cartel….

  14. Regina J. says:

    I had endometrios and fibroid tumors and took the injection of lupron three times was suppose to have six injections but instead I was put on the pill form for a year back in 2003-2004. This drug is dangerous and fatal and it should be forever taken off the drug market. I’m still suffering from the after affects. I’m not able to work anymore due to this horrifying drug.I came down with all kind of health problems such as, muscle and joint pain,bone density lost,diabetes,arthritis etc.and I tried to find help back then but to no avail no help and now I’m totally disabled. I feel that my life was destroyed by this drug,yet while I’m alive. Sincerely Delores Cohen

  15. Can anyone provide a link or information regarding filing a suit against AbbiVie? My medication was “donated” and my doctor went against our agreement of the 1 month month dosage and was giving me the 3 month shot every month. I have dystonic symptoms, heart issues, neurological, to name a few. I can’t afford to hire an attorney alone, any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

  16. Amtul Wardrop says:

    Lupron ruined my life. I had no idea about lasting sidd effects innthe long term. I had to quit school and my job. I am disabled can no longer leave the house except for appointments, can no longer drive, amdI am in constant, debilitating pain and my endometriosis is worse than ever. I am also broke. My memory is shot. I am not the same person. My entire life is ruined. I will never has a house or a child. I am only 27.

  17. Cynthia Levi says:

    I was considering this because of fibroids and heavy bleeding, but after reading this I am going to wait it out until menopause, which will probably be in a year. I can always have D&C a couple of times a year to keep things under control.

        Hi Sharon,
