  • Used for palliative treatment (relieving symptoms and minimize the associated suffering) of advanced prostatic cancer


LUPRIDE 1MG INJECTION helps in palliative treatment of advanced prostatic cancer where leuprolide works by initial stimulation followed by blocking of secretion of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), resulting in suppression of production of ovarian and testicular hormones. This thus helps to relieve the symptoms associated with increased testosterone levels in advanced prostatic cancer.


LUPRIDE 1MG INJECTION will be administered to you only by a doctor or a nurse subcutaneously (under the skin). Keep changing the site of injection periodically if taken for long term. Your doctor will administer the correct dose and duration for you depending upon your age, body weight and disease condition.
