Lupron Depot Kit

(leuprolide)

Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) is a medication that has been designed to mimic the actions of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH or LHRH), the hormone released from the hypothalamus gland in the brain. The hypothalamus uses GnRH to send messages to the pituitary gland in the brain, which then sends messages to the ovaries in women, and the testicles in men, telling these organs to produce the sex hormones estrogen (in women) and testosterone (in men).

Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) is a medication that has been designed to mimic the actions of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH or LHRH), the hormone released from the hypothalamus gland in the brain. The hypothalamus uses GnRH to send messages to the pituitary gland in the brain, which then sends messages to the ovaries in women, and the testicles in men, telling these organs to produce the sex hormones estrogen (in women) and testosterone (in men). Normally, GnRH comes from the hypothalamus in pulses, leading to the production of estrogen or testosterone. If GnRH came from the hypothalamus all of the time (rather than in "pulses"), it would have the opposite effect and "turn off" hormone production. This is what Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) does.

When given to boys or men, Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) reduces the amount of testosterone produced in the body. Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) is used to treat Prostate Cancer because prostate cancer cells need testosterone in order to grow and reproduce.

When given to girls or women, Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) reduces the amount of estrogen the body produces. It is used to treat Endometriosis because reduced levels of estrogen help to relieve the symptoms of this condition. It may also be used with iron supplementation to improve Anemia before surgery to remove uterine fibroids.

Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) is also used to help slow down the development of the genital areas in boys (under the age of 9) and girls (under the age of 8) who are experiencing early puberty. As soon as the child stops using the medication, normal development is allowed to continue.

Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.

Do not stop using Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Lupron Depot Kit (Leuprolide) if their doctor has not prescribed it.
