Leuprolide (Leuprorelin) is a brand-name medication produced by Sandoz. Leuprolide stimulates hormone production to temporarily reduce the amount of testosterone found in men and estrogen in women. Leuprolide is used for certain fertility treatments in women and prostate cancer treatments for men.
Leuprolide is prescribed to treat the underlying causes of infertility. Women suffering from endometriosis and uterine fibroids are prescribed Leuprolide to manage these conditions. Prostate cancer patients are prescribed Leuprolide to control the cancer symptoms. However, the drug does not treat the cancer directly. As part of an IVF treatment protocol, Leuprolide is prescribed to stop ovulation.
Leuprolide is injected subcutaneous (under the skin) or intramuscularly (into the muscle). Leuprolide can be stored at room temperature until use. Once opened, the medication must be kept refrigerated.
