What is Danazol?

What does it do?
Danazol shuts down the pituitary gland and puts the body into pseudo-menopause. You shouldn’t have any periods while on this treatment but the periods usually return 2 to 3 months after treatment is stopped.

Side effects:
-acne, decreased sex drive, headaches, hot flushes, oily skin
-oily hair, reduction in breast size, weight gain (up to 10 pounds)
-abnormal facial hair and body hair growth, emotional instability, depression
-nervousness, fatigue, fluid retention, muscle aches and cramps
-vaginal dryness and irritation, breast pain, deepening of the voice
-insomnia, nausea, rash, visual disturbances, dizziness, appetite changes
-stomach upset, bloating, anxiety, chills, nasal congestion

Notes:
Make sure you use another form of birth control (ie. condom) as danazol may cause harm to the fetus. If you think you might be pregnant, stop treatment immediately.
