Firmagon injection - minimising side effects

Paul Edwards

Recommended Posts

One of the drugs used in androgen deprivation therapy is Firmagon (degarelix).  Firmagon requires a monthly injection.  There can be severe pain at the site of the injection (caused by bruising and rashes which can last for 3-4 days each month).


This post has been updated with additional suggestions about how to miminise the pain from a Firmagon injection.
