BENEFITS OF LUPRODEX INJECTION
In Treatment of Prostate cancer
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 Depot 3.75mg 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 Depot 3.75mg 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 Depot 3.75mg 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 childs body to adult structure and size) begins before age 8 in girls and before age 9 in boys, it is considered precocious puberty. Luprodex Depot 3.75mg 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 doctors instructions carefully for the most benefit.
