Hi, I am on Firmagon 80mg/month (started with 120mg) -

Hi, I am on Firmagon 80mg/month (started with 120mg) - since 4 months. However, I don't see any testosterone reduction symptoms or changes, why is that - is it because I should have started with 240mg - what can be done now? I am 35, male, diabetic, obese, hypertensive. Also, is it possible to apply depo provera solution on arms/belly button for it to be absorb? will it be effective too? Lastly, after being on testosterone suppression for about 3 yrs, I see my face has become swollen and bloated, why? thanks.

Hi there.I have been on Lucrin forninemonths and on. Monday I started treatment with Firmagon. I am taking frusemide (40mg) for edema in my feet and ankles which Iassume was caused by Lucrin. I check my BP twice in the morning and twice in the evening. I have had two readings 87/41 in the last two days since I had my Firmagon shots on Monday. Could this low reading be caused by Firmagon? Please cancel, money was not mentioned until too late to agree or disagree. No funds are available for payment, as I said I am an Age Pensioner (Government Pension.)

Hi thanks. I do not have a problem. I am only reading to improve my knowledge. A friend has just informed me that he was unwell and has been placed on firmagon. I wanted to know what it is used for. It mentioned this issue hence I came about reading this topic. Once again thanks but I am only seeking knowledge at my leisure.
