Description

What is Luprodex Depot 11.25 mg Injection?

Luprodex Depot 11.25 mg Injection is used in the treatment of prostate cancer. It is also used to treat endometriosis (endometrium of the uterus grows excessively and causes symptoms like pain, and heavy or irregular periods), uterine fibroids and central precocious puberty (very early puberty).

Luprodex 11.25mg Injection is given as an injection under the skin by a qualified medical professional.  Your doctor will decide what dose is necessary and how often you need to take it. This will depend on what you are being treated for and may change from time to time. You should take it exactly as your doctor has advised. Taking it in the wrong way or taking too much can cause very serious side effects. It may take several weeks or months for you to see or feel the benefits but do not stop taking it unless your doctor tells you to.

How Luprodex Depot 11.25 mg Injection Works

Luprodex 11.25mg Injection reduces the amount of sex hormones (testosterone in men and estrogen in women). It works by decreasing the blood levels of testosterone in males. Luprodex 11.25mg Injection also acts by shutting off hormones made by the ovaries (female reproductive organs), so the estrogen (one of the hormones that causes females to have periods) level is lowered.

Benefits Of Luprodex Injection

In Treatment of Prostate Cancer

The prostate gland is a small walnut-sized gland that produces a fluid called seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperms in males. The most common symptom of prostate cancer is difficulty with urination, but sometimes there are no symptoms at all. Luprodex 11.25mg Injection decreases or stops the growth of cancer cells by decreasing the amount of testosterone (natural hormone in males) in men. This also relieves difficulty in passing urine and makes it easier for you to urinate.

In Treatment of Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue like the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places. The main symptoms include pain in your lower stomach or back, period pain, pain during and after sex, constipation, diarrhea and feeling sick. It can also make it difficult to get pregnant. Luprodex 11.25mg Injection works by preventing the lining of your womb and any endometriosis tissue from growing too quickly. This will help relieve the symptoms you may have. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective and you may need other medicines or procedures to help control endometriosis.

In Treatment of Uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Luprodex 11.25mg Injection helps control the symptoms associated with uterine fibroids such as excessive menstrual bleeding, lower back pain, and also reduces the size of the existing fibroids. It blocks the action of the enzyme responsible for the growth of the broids. As a result, they decrease in size and also stop growing further.

In Treatment of Precocious puberty (premature puberty)

When puberty (change of a child’s body to adult structure and size) begins before age 8 in girls and before age 9 in boys, it is considered precocious puberty. Luprodex 11.25mg Injection helps delay this early onset of adulthood and limits the onset of precocious puberty. However, this medicine is given by a doctor and should not be self-administered. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully for the most benefit.
