Drug Mode of Action ::  

Medroxyprogesterone is a synthetic progestogen which converts the proliferative phase of the endometrium into secretory phase. It has some androgenic and anabolic activities but no oestrogenic effects. Parenteral use leads to inhibition of pituitary gonadotropins, thus preventing follicular maturation and ovulation.

Drug Interactions ::

Aminoglutethimide and enzyme-inducing drugs (e.g. carbamazepine, griseofulvin, phenobarbital, rifampicin, phenytoin) may reduce plasma concentrations leading to reduced efficacy. Additional measures required when medroxyprogesterone is used for contraception during coadministration with these drugs.
