What is Lupride Injection?
Lupride injection is predominately used by female patients to help treat endometriosis. Endometriosis is when cells start to grow outside of the uterus which results in pain surrounding the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes. This medicine will help to inhibit the further growth of these cells, reducing pain and discomfort.
How is Lupride Injection used?
Lupride Injection is usually administered by a healthcare professional via injection. This medication is intended for short term use (less than 6 months) and is administered once a month. Patients who miss an injection appointment may experience menstruation. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy.
Patients using Lupride Injection may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Abnormal weakness, dizziness, nervousness, or anxiety
- Skin sensitivity
- Swelling of the limbs, face, or edema
- Abnormal behavior
- Increased testosterone
- Difficulty sleeping
- Changes to your appetite or weight
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
