How soon after taking Danazol will my symptoms improve?

The length of time that it will take for symptoms to improve once you start taking danazol depends on what medical condition you have. For people with endometriosis, danazol should be taken for at least three to six months in order to be fully effective, and sometimes nine months of treatment may be necessary. Symptoms of fibrocystic breast disease are usually noticeably improved after about a month, and they may go away completely within two or three months. Usually, to be safe, danazol is taken for four to six months to completely get rid of the "lumpiness" caused by fibrocystic breast disease. For treating hereditary angioedema, danazol is usually taken for one to three months after symptoms improve. In most cases, if symptoms come back after treatment is complete, another round of danazol treatment may be given.
