During the first weeks of treatment, signs of puberty, such as vaginal bleeding, may occur. This is a
common initial effect of the drug. Notify your child's doctor if signs/symptoms of puberty continue
beyond the second month of treatment.
After the injection, some pain and irritation is expected; however, if more severe symptoms occur or if
any new, unusual, or worsened symptoms develop, contact your child's doctor.
Your child's initial response to LUPRON DEPOT-PED should be monitored, as well as their continued
response during treatment, as clinically needed.
If your child receives a 1-month injection, response is assessed 1–2 months after the initial injection.
If your child receives a 3-month injection, response is assessed 2–3 months after the initial
injection and at month 6.
Height and bone age should be checked every 6–12 months in children using either formulation
of LUPRON DEPOT-PED.
It is important that you keep your child's doctor appointments and follow the prescribed injection
schedule. Your child's pubertal development could begin again if injections are missed.
