Prostate Cancer Home > Eligard 2 Months
Eligard® (leuprolide acetate) is a type of hormone therapy used in the treatment of prostate cancer. It is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist, a type of drug also sometimes called a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) agonist.
When receiving treatment with Eligard, the drug is injected just under the skin every 1, 3, 4, or 6 months. Receiving Eligard every 2 months is not an option. You can give yourself the shots; however, most men receive them at a healthcare provider's office.
