Lupron Depot is supposed to be administered intramuscularly into the gluteal area (buttocks), anterior thigh, or deltoid. And injections should be rotated (left, right etc)
The (skillful) nurse that injected me used the thigh, and apart from a brief sensation (a few hours), there were no side effects from the injection itself. She also told me that many of her patients changed from Eligard (in the tummy) to Lupron Depot (in the thigh) because the Lupron injections caused fewer injection site 'problems'. Of course, this is not a double blind study, but I thought it might be useful to mention her findings.
