Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Lupron is an antiandrogen medication --that means it is going to wipe out any testosterone in the body.

This can cause hot flashes, fatigue, sexual dysfunction like erection problem commonly.

Also bone loss related osteoporosis can be a problem.

Hence,fosamax, calcium and vitamin d are recommended usually to prevent bone loss.

Cialis daily can be taken to counteract erection problem.

Hot flashes can be managed with Effexor.


Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
