Improving outcomes with Zoladex

There are a number of things you can do to help make Zoladex treatment as effective as possible:

  1. Keep having Zoladex treatment even if you are feeling well.
  2. After each injection, always remind the doctor or nurse to set up an appointment for your next injection
  3. If you are given an appointment for your next injection which is earlier or later than the required number of weeks from your last injection, check with your doctor or nurse
  4. If it has been more than the required number of weeks since your last injection, contact your doctor or nurse so that you can receive your injection as soon as possible
  5. Keep having Zoladex treatment until your doctor decides that it is time for you to stop.
  6. If you have also been given anti-androgen tablets make sure you take them regularly for as long as instructed
  7. If you experience any side effects for the first time, contact your doctor
  8. If you have to collect a prescription for Zoladex, always store it at room temperature (not above 25˚C) until it is needed
  9. Tell your doctor straight away if you notice any new signs or symptoms
  10. Always attend any follow-up appointments.
