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.

  5. Mary Bowden says:

    I am a 40 year old female and have taken these injections for two years now to treat severe endometriosis however, I have had severe side effects of severe anxiety and severe osteoporosis. I was never informed of these harmful side effects and was never informed to even begin taking calcium to say the least. Please provide information on anyone taking lawsuits for this drug. I am now folding for disability.

  6. 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

  7. 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!!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
