The injection Zoladex is given in females to decrease the hormonal levels of LH;and FSH hormones and it has been given for the endometrosis which yous wife has.
The common side effects that can occur are :-urticaria or itching;hot flushes;lethergy;oedema;sexual dysfunction;etc.These side effects like any other medicines are found in very few cases and not all.Also there is no study showing memory loss following the use of it at present.
