Drug Precautions ::
Safe use of leuprolide acetate or norethindrone acetate in pregnancy has not been established clinically. Before starting treatment with LUPRON DEPOT, pregnancy must be excluded. When used monthly at the recommended dose, LUPRON DEPOT usually inhibits ovulation and stops menstruation. Contraception is not insured, however, by taking LUPRON DEPOT. Therefore, patients should use non-hormonal methods of contraception. Patients should be advised to see their physician if they believe they may be pregnant. If a patient becomes pregnant during treatment, the drug must be discontinued and the patient must be apprised of the potential risk to the fetus. During the early phase of therapy, sex steroids temporarily rise above baseline because of the physiologic effect of the drug. Therefore, an increase in clinical signs and symptoms may be observed during the initial days of therapy, but these will dissipate with continued therapy. Norethindrone acetate treatment should be discontinued if there is a sudden partial or complete loss of vision or if there is sudden onset of proptosis, diplopia, or migraine. If examination reveals papilledema or retinal vascular lesions, medication should be withdrawn.

Drug Mode of Action ::
Leuprorelin is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue. Following an initial stimulation of gonadotrophins, continuous admin of Leuprorelin leads to down regulation of GnRH receptors and subsequently reduces pituitary gonadotrophin secretion. Reduced gonadotrophin levels lead to inhibition of sex hormone (testosterone and oestrogen) production. Within 2-4 wk after treatment initiation, testosterone levels in male may be reduced to below castrate threshold.
