LUPRON DEPOT-PED works by suppressing the release of puberty‑causing hormones.2
LUPRON DEPOT-PED is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist. It’s a medicine that is similar to GnRH, a hormone made naturally by your body. LUPRON DEPOT-PED works by suppressing the natural GnRH hormone. This interrupts the release of the hormones that cause puberty until it is a more appropriate time for puberty to occur.
When LUPRON DEPOT-PED therapy stops, puberty starts back up.2
Your pediatric endocrinologist will monitor your child’s progress during therapy. Then, when he or she reaches the age when puberty should occur, the doctor will stop treatment and puberty will start back up again.
