How long can Zoladex LA be taken for?
My 92 years old father has been taking Zoladex LA for approximately three and a half years. I read a comment somewhere on this site that said the effects of taking this drug for more than two years were pointless. Is this the case, or does it fiffer from one individual to another? My father is not taking any hormonr supplements.

Thanks

DP.

Hi there!

Well, there are some variations noted in study results with Zoladex. While all studies support that the medication should be continued for atleast 1.5-2 years; a few regimens suggest continuing the medication indefinitely.  Ideally it is advisable to continue the medication for atleast 1.5 years or preferably indefinitely unless there are specific contraindications to its use or development of specific side effects.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
