BACKGROUND

THE NATIONAL LUPRON VICTIMS NETWORK is an independent, international, grass-roots organization comprised of men and women who have taken Lupron and are experiencing medical problems after stopping the drug. Founded in 1993, The National Lupron Victims Network includes members from the United States, Canada, Europe and other countries. Thousands of people have contacted the network.
Numerous people are experiencing similar chronic medical problems after exposure to Lupron. Most are having difficulties in obtaining satisfactory medical care to address these problems, even when they are listed as adverse reactions for Lupron. The National Lupron Victims Network is involved with all issues relevant to those who have taken Lupron and continue to experience medical problems as a result of Lupron usage.

LUPRON INFORMATION

Most of the information that The National Lupron Victims Network provides comes from the medical literature written by doctors in peer reviewed medical journals. Some information comes from documents released by the US Food and Drug Administration, and the package insert. The package insert for Lupron is in the book The Physician’s Desk Reference, which can be found in most libraries.
None of the statistics provided by The National Lupron Victims Network comes from people who have contacted the organization.
All of the information provided by The National Lupron Victims Network is available through this internet site (of course for free!). The National Lupron Victims Network does NOT accept money from drug companies or other sources. We feel this would be a conflict of interest.

Slick Lines Used By PRO-Lupron People

If someone tells you that … Lupron should be a matter of “CHOICE”… you are hearing a slick PRO-Lupron line.
That statement really means that Lupron should remain on the market whether or not Lupron is safe, and/or whether or not Lupron works.
It really means that safety problems with Lupron should NOT be explored.
It really means that even if Lupron is unsafe, Lupron should still remain on the market.
If someone wants Lupron to be a CHOICE, they want Lupron to remain ON the market! They do not want Lupron taken OFF the market.

Where did the word “choice” come from?

ome examples:
1989 Brochure: Advanced Prostate Cancer Treatment and Choices
“Ultimately, the choice of therapy for prostate cancer is up to each individual.”
1993 Brochure: Your Choice For Treating Endometriosis
“… the drug you and your doctor have chosen…”
“Your treatment choice.”
“The treatment you and your doctor have chosen…”
1994 Brochure: Endometriosis
“Ultimately, the choice of treatment for endometriosis is up to each individual woman.”
“Whatever treatment a woman chooses…”
“…a treatment choice should be pursued with confidence.”
1994 Brochure: Coping With Endometriosis
“Ultimately, the best treatment choice is up to each individual and her physician.”
