Paul Edwards Posted November 14, 2013 Share Posted November 14, 2013 Other than diet and exercise, has anyone got any suggestions as to how to alleviate the side effects of ADT on cognition and memory? Dr Myers in the comments to his 11 September 2013 video said: "There are many tools to minimize the side effects of Lupron or similar drugs. For example, Vivelle dot 0.025 mg/day patch every 3.5 days lessens hot flashes and improves cognitive function. This is well tolerated." My medical team said Estrogen patches for this purpose failed the benefit/risk test - no documented evidence of benefit in clinical trials against significant risks (cardiovascular, gastrointestinal etc etc) I'd be interested if any members have had low dose estrogen patches prescribed by their doctors for the side effects of ADT.
