how do you feel after lupaneta shot

I'm on my way to get this shot and want to know if it helps ## Hello, Nel! How are you? Yes, it has successfully helped some endometriosis sufferers, but it may cause some side effects afterwards, such as nausea, dizziness and headache, thus it would be best to make sure you aren't driving, after receiving it. Will you be administering the future doses at home or will your doctor be doing it? ## My Doctors office Thursday ! I'm ready for this to be over ..
