Two weeks ago I underwent surgery to remove a lump in the breast, the results of a lab examination of Fibrocystic changes in the left mammary. Because I still feel pain and there is a thick feeling around the incision, I consulted the operating doctor, and then I was given meloxicam (painkiller) and a prescription for Danocrine to be redeemed myself. Does the drug have any side effects? and how long should I take the drug. Thank you, please explain about Danocrine
Hi Wiwin, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The product you mention contains the generic composition Danazol. Danazol is a synthetic steroid class drug that functions to inhibit the release of certain hormones in the body. Usually this drug is given to treat women who complain of hip pain or infertility due to endometriosis and also pain or lumps in the breast due to certain conditions such as fibrocystic disease. This medicine is usually taken with meals.
Every human-made drug certainly has side effects, but it should be noted that not everyone who takes this drug experiences these effects. Among the side effects that have been reported on taking this drug are:
Weight gain Hair loss Acne and dandruff Sore throat Hoarseness Menstrual disorders Back pain and muscle cramps High blood pressure Pounding feeling Bloody urine
You also have to be careful because this drug is not recommended for consumption by:
Pregnant women Breastfeeding women People with impaired liver function People with kidney disorders People with heart problems
Regarding the duration of drug consumption, drugs are usually given to be consumed for a matter of months, it can be 2 months to 6 or 9 months. This depends on your doctor's assessment. If it's still unclear, it would be better if you ask your doctor for the consumption of the drug and the duration of use because the guidelines will vary for each person. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
