Eligard Medication Information
Eligard® (leuprolide acetate) is a medicine approved for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. Although this medication can relieve symptoms and help control the progression of the disease, it is not a prostate cancer cure. The injections are typically administered at a healthcare provider's office every one, three, four, or six months.
Prior to beginning treatment with Eligard, information on your complete medical history should be given to your healthcare provider. This includes any other medical conditions you have, such as diabetes and osteoporosis, and any other drugs you are taking, including nonprescription medicines and supplements. Discussing this with your healthcare provider will help him or her make sure this is the right treatment option for you.
