What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Lupron Depot Overview
Leuprolide is used to treat disorders of the uterus (such as endometriosis, fibroids). For the treatment of fibroids, leuprolide is usually given with iron to help improve anemia that is caused by too much vaginal bleeding. Leuprolide helps to reduce symptoms such as pelvic pain, painful/heavy menstrual periods, and abdominal bloating. It works by shrinking the abnormal uterine tissue that causes these symptoms. Uterine tissue needs the female hormone estrogen to grow and spread. Leuprolide helps to decrease the amount of estrogen that is made in the body.
How to Use Lupron Depot
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using leuprolide and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Lupron Depot is given by injection into a muscle by a health care professional. It is given as directed by your doctor, usually once every 3 months. Lupron Depot slowly releases the medication into your blood over a 3-month period. If you are using Lupron Depot at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional and the product package. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. Wash your hands and properly mix the medication. Before injecting each dose, clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol. Change the injection site each time to lessen injury under the skin. Inject each dose within 2 hours of mixing. If more than 2 hours have passed since mixing, throw out the product and prepare another syringe/dose. The length of treatment is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and lab tests. Use Lupron Depot regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, mark your calendar to keep track of when to receive the next dose. During the first few weeks of treatment, your hormone levels will actually go up before they go down. This is a normal response to Lupron Depot. Your symptoms may get worse for a few weeks. Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse. It may take at least 3 months for your symptoms to get better.
