Leuprolide Hot Flashes

Although generally well tolerated, leuprolide acetate (Eligard®, Lupron®, Lupron Depot®) has been known to cause side effects during treatment. For example, hot flashes were reported by up to 84 percent of adults using leuprolide in clinical trials. This was the most commonly reported reaction, followed by reactions at the injection site (such as mild burning or stinging) and general body pain. Fortunately, most side effects of this drug are minor and require little (if any) treatment by you or your healthcare provider.
