Subject: Re: Re: Lupron VS Melatonin

Hi Jen and Vicky,
Lupron tends to give better results that last for
a longer time than melatonin based on the U of
Wisconsin study. I also use melatonin in cases where
the owner can not afford Lupron and recently with Lupron
for those cases of adrenal carcinomas that do not respond
well to Lupron by itself. Me and Dr Johnson from Texas A&M
are planning a study using the mink melatonin implants to see
if they work better than the daily tablet form of melatonin.
I'll let you know how that goes. In the mean time I would continue
using 1 mg of melatonin once a day about 8-9 hours after sunrise.
Melatonin is better than no treatment.
Hope that answers your questions,
Jerry Murray, DVM
