    Default Lupron question- if anyone is on tonight

    Hi... I'm hoping someone is on that can answer my question... I had b/w this morning and I got the OK to start my Lupron. However, they never told me if I have to take it between a certain time, like the gonal-f, or not. I'm on 10 units, is this normal? It seems like so little compared to everything else, LOL.

    Does anyone know?? I'm waiting for the RE to call me, but haven't heard anything back yet *sigh* They are getting a call from me tomorrow... I'm so annoyed with them right now. This Lupron question is only 1 of the issues! Grr!

    Thanks!!!

    I would think you could take your lupron anytime as long as your doses are equally spread apart. Do you take it once a day? If so, make sure they are spread 24hrs apart. At the last clinic I went to I had a one hour window on each side for taking meds. Yes...10 units sounds like a right dose.

    Good luck!! I hope you RE's office calls back so you can be confident in your answer.

    Thanks Meg! Yes, I take it once a day... I'm just nervous. It's my first time on Lupron. I hate needles and being on this for 11 days before even starting stims has got me stressed out

    I did Lupron... I didn't have a specific time but I had to do it at the same time every night. 10 units sounds right ~ I was on 20 but I've heard of others taking less. You'll get through this... it's not fun but you GOT THIS!! You're in my thoughts and prayers!!

    You'll do fine. Lupron is pretty easy and painless.
