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.

Goserelin is used to treat certain types of cancer (prostate and breast). It is also used to thin the lining of the uterus (endometrium) in preparation for a procedure to treat abnormal uterine bleeding. Goserelin is also used to treat a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus also grows outside the uterus (endometriosis). Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of treatment. Goserelin is similar to a natural hormone made by the body (luteinizing hormone releasing hormone-LHRH). It works by decreasing testosterone hormones and estrogen hormones. This effect helps to slow or stop the growth of certain cancer cells and uterine tissue that need these hormones to grow and spread.
How to Use Zoladex
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using goserelin and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Zoladex is an implant that slowly releases hormone into your body. It is placed by a health care professional by injection under the skin of the lower abdomen below the navel. The implant itself will be completely absorbed into the body over weeks or months. Receive Zoladex as directed by your doctor. The 3.6-milligram syringe is usually injected every 4 weeks. The 10.8-milligram syringe is usually injected every 12 to 13 weeks. Follow the dosing schedule carefully to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, mark your calendar to keep track of when to receive the next dose. Do not stop Zoladex without your doctor's approval. The Dosage of Zoladex is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. During the first few weeks of treatment, your hormone levels will actually increase before they decrease. This is a normal response by your body to Zoladex. This may cause new or worsening symptoms (such as increased pain, increased difficulty urinating in men) for the first few weeks. Tell your doctor right away about these symptoms. See also Side Effects section. In women, menstrual periods should stop when Zoladex is used regularly. Tell your doctor promptly if regular periods continue after 2 months of treatment with goserelin. Usually, Zoladex will not need to be removed because the implant will be slowly and completely absorbed by your body. However, in the unlikely event that you have serious side effects or other problems, your doctor may remove Zoladex. Tell your doctor if your condition gets worse.
Before using goserelin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to LHRH or LHRH-like hormones (such as triptorelin); or if you have any other allergies. Zoladex may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Zoladex, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,unexplained abnormal vaginal bleeding, diabetes, long-term alcohol use, smoking, personal or family history of bone loss (osteoporosis), heart disease (such as heart attack), high cholesterol/triglyceride levels, stroke, urinary blockage problem (in men), spinal cord problem (in men). If you have diabetes, Zoladex may make it harder to control your blood sugar. Check your blood sugar regularly as directed and share the results with your doctor. Tell your doctor right away if you have symptoms of high blood sugar (see Side Effects section). Your doctor may need to adjust your diabetes medication, exercise program, or diet. Goserelin may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away. The risk of QT prolongation may be increased if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other drugs that may cause QT prolongation. Before using goserelin,certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, sudden cardiac death). Low levels of potassium or magnesium in the blood may also increase your risk of QT prolongation. This risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/"water pills") or if you have conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting. Talk to your doctor about using goserelin safely. Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Zoladex, especially QT prolongation (see above). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You should not become pregnant while using goserelin. Goserelin may harm an unborn baby. Ask about reliable non-hormonal forms of birth control (such as condoms, diaphragm with spermicide) while using Zoladex and for 12 weeks after the last dose or until the return of your period. If you become pregnant, talk to your doctor right away about the risks and benefits of Zoladex. It is unknown if Zoladex passes into breast milk. Because of the possible risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Zoladex is not recommended. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
It is important to get each dose of Zoladex as scheduled. If you miss a dose of Zoladex, ask your doctor or pharmacist right away for a new dosing schedule. Sudden/unusual vaginal bleeding (breakthrough bleeding) may occur if a dose is missed.
