Warnings and Precautions

If you go into hospital, let the medical staff know you are receiving ZOLADEX LA.

Suppression of sex hormones can also result in a loss of mineral from bone, some of which may not be reversible. Certain conditions may increase the possibility of thinning of the bones such as:

  • Family history of severe osteoporosis (thinning of the bones with fractures).

  • Taking other medicines that cause thinning of the bones.

  • Drinking alcohol or smoking.

You should discuss the possibility of osteoporosis or thinning of the bones with your doctor before starting ZOLADEX LA.

At the beginning of treatment, due to a temporary increase of hormone levels, your condition may worsen.

In women, there are no clinical data on the effect of treating endometriosis with ZOLADEX LA for the periods in excess of six months.

ZOLADEX LA is not recommended for use in children.

ZOLADEX LA is unlikely to affect your ability to drive a car or to operate machinery.

Before you use ZOLADEX LA, talk to your doctor or pharmacist if any of the following applies to you

  • Have or have had any problem passing urine.

  • Family history of severe osteoporosis (thinning of the bones with fractures).

  • Taking other medicines that cause thinning of the bones.

  • Have diabetes.

  • Are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. ZOLADEX LA should not be used during pregnancy, therefore, effective non-hormonal contraceptive methods should be used to prevent pregnancy during the treatment and until the return of menses after the last injection with ZOLADEX LA.
