Drug Mode of Action ::
Triptorelin is a synthetic analogue of natural gonadotropin-releasing hormone. Initial admin stimulates the release of pituitary gonadotrophins with a transient increase in testosterone levels in men and in oestradiol levels in women, leading to an initial worsening of symptoms during the first wk. Prolonged admin leads to a suppression of gonadotrophins and a decrease in plasma testosterone or oestradiol after approximately 20 days, which is maintained for as long as triptorelin is admin.
Drug Interactions ::
Decrease in LHRH receptors in pituitary with hyperprolactinaemic drugs antagonises effects of triptorelin.
