Zoladex LA (goserelin) is a medication used for various purposes, including the treatment of prostate cancer, breast cancer, endometriosis, and abnormal uterine bleeding. 

It is a type of hormone therapy that belongs to a class of medications called gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogs.It is administered as a small pellet injected under the skin (subcutaneously).

In prostate cancer, Zoladex LA is often used in combination with other hormonal drugs for a few weeks. While in breast cancer, Zoladex LA is used in pre-menopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.

The medication works by inhibiting the secretion of gonadotropin, which leads to a decrease in follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) production.

Do’s

  • Get Zoladex implanted by a healthcare provider only.
  • Follow your healthcare provider's exact instructions regarding dosage (3.6mg every 4 weeks or 10.8mg every 12-13 weeks) and injection location (lower abdomen).
  • Keep track of your appointments and get injections on schedule.
  • Report any side effects to your healthcare provider, especially during the first few weeks (increased pain, urination difficulty in men).
  • Inform your healthcare provider if you still have regular periods after 2 months of treatment.

Don'ts

  • Don't stop taking Zoladex unless your healthcare provider advises you to.
  • Don't change the dosage or injection schedule on your own.
  • Don't expect immediate results - it takes time for hormone levels to decrease.
  • Don't panic if your hormone levels rise initially - this is a normal response in the beginning.
