Hi Again.

I did look up Zoladex and it seems to work in the same way as Lupron by surpressing estrogen and creating a post menapausal state. The side effect listed are similar to Lupron... hot flashes, headaches, bone pain, breast changes and depression. I have not taken it so I don't know anything about it personally, but wanted to share what I found. Good luck. Ginny
