Zoladex LA Precautions

There may be an interaction between Zoladex LA (Goserelin) (long-acting) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with this medication. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Zoladex LA Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use this medication.

Anemia: Reduced testosterone levels contribute to low levels of red blood cells. If you experience symptoms of reduced red blood cell count (anemia) such as shortness of breath, feeling unusually tired, or pale skin, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Your doctor will do blood tests regularly to monitor the number of specific types of blood cells, including red blood cells, in your blood.

Depression: Changed levels of hormones in the body have been known to cause mood swings and symptoms of depression. If you have depression or a history of depression, discuss with your doctor how Zoladex LA (Goserelin) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Zoladex LA (Goserelin), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of depression such as poor concentration, changes in weight, changes in sleep, or decreased interest in activities, or notice them in a family member who is taking Zoladex LA (Goserelin), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Diabetes: Zoladex LA (Goserelin) may cause a loss of blood glucose control, and glucose tolerance may change. People with diabetes may find it necessary to monitor their blood sugar more frequently while using Zoladex LA (Goserelin).

If you have diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Zoladex LA (Goserelin) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Zoladex LA (Goserelin), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Fertility: When estrogen production is stopped, women stop ovulating. As a result of stopping the production of sex hormones, menstrual bleeds will also stop. Once Zoladex LA (Goserelin) has been discontinued, normal ovulation and menstrual bleeding should return in approximately 12 weeks. If you are planning to become pregnant, wait until you have had at least one normal menstrual period. On rare occasions, some women may enter Menopause early and menstruation does not return after stopping treatment.

Heart problems: If you have heart disease or another heart problem such as heart failure or an abnormal heart rhythm, discuss with your doctor how Zoladex LA (Goserelin) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Zoladex LA (Goserelin), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Men and the heart: There may be an increased risk of heart-related events (e.g., heart attacks, Stroke, heart-related death) in men being treated for prostate cancer with GnRH medications. Before you start treatment, tell your doctor if you have diabetes, heart disease, had a previous heart attack or stroke, or have cardiovascular risk factors (e.g., high blood pressure, smoking, or cholesterol). If you have any of these conditions, discuss with your doctor how Zoladex LA (Goserelin) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Zoladex LA (Goserelin), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Osteoporosis: Zoladex LA (Goserelin) can cause bones to lose thickness. Your doctor will monitor you for this while you are using Zoladex LA (Goserelin). If you have osteoporosis or are at risk for it (e.g., have been smoking or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol for a long time, have a family history of osteoporosis, or are taking medications such as Prednisone or anti-seizure medications), discuss with your doctor how Zoladex LA (Goserelin) may affect your medical condition and whether any special monitoring is needed.
