Table of contents:

Lupron Depot is a medication that contains leuprolide acetate and is used to treat certain disorders such as endometriosis and uterine fibroids. It contains leuprolide acetate and is typically administered by injection into a muscle by a healthcare provider. It works by suppressing the hormones that cause endometrial tissue to grow. It blocks the body from creating certain hormones, such as estrogen or testosterone, which helps stop certain cells from growing.

Lupron Depot is also given to lower the estrogen made by ovaries and is commonly used to treat endometriosis. Additionally, Lupron Depot-Ped works by stopping the body from producing sex hormones and is used to stop or reverse the signs of early-onset puberty in children.

Use and Dosage

Lupron Depot Kit is administered through injection and is available in different dosages and formulations. The Lupron Depot kit usually includes a prefilled dual-chamber syringe, a plunger, alcohol swabs, and prescribing information.

To properly administer Lupron Depot Kit, first learn all preparation and usage instructions from your healthcare professional and the product package. Before injecting each dose, wash your hands and properly mix the medication. Clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol and change the injection site each time to lessen injury under the skin. Inject each dose within 2 hours of mixing. If more than 2 hours have passed since mixing, throw out the product and prepare another syringe/dose. The length of treatment depends on your medical condition, response to treatment, and lab tests.

To ensure maximum benefits from the treatment, use Lupron Depot Kit regularly and mark your calendar to keep track of when to receive the next dose. During the first few weeks of treatment, your hormone levels may go up before they go down, and your symptoms may initially get worse. However, it may take at least 3 months for your symptoms to improve. If your condition does not improve or worsens, inform your doctor. Additionally, make sure to store and discard medical supplies safely.
