1 capsule contains:
Active ingredient: goserelin (as goserelin acetate) 3.6 mg
Excipients: a low molecular weight lactic and glycolic acid copolymer (95: 5) and a high molecular weight lactic and glycolic acid copolymer (95: 5) - up to a total weight of 36 mg (the weight ratio between the low molecular weight and high molecular weight copolymer is 3: 1).
Dosage and Administration
Zoladex Depot 10.8 mg is administered subcutaneously into the anterior abdominal wall every 12 weeks.
In malignant neoplasms, the drug is prescribed for a long time.
To thin the endometrium 2 depot Zoladex 3.6 mg is administered at intervals of 4 weeks, while the operation is recommended to be carried out within the first two weeks after the introduction of the second capsule depot.
In benign gynecological neoplasms, the drug is prescribed for no more than 6 months, since at the moment there is no clinical data on longer courses of therapy. Repeated courses should not be prescribed because of the danger of a decrease in bone mineral density.
During in vitro fertilization, pituitary desensitization is determined by the concentration of estradiol in the blood serum. As a rule, the required level of estradiol, which corresponds to that in the early follicular phase of the cycle (approximately 150 pmol / L), is reached between 7 and 21 days. When pituitary desensitization occurs, superovulation stimulation (controlled ovarian stimulation) begins with gonadotropin. Caused pituitary desensitization with Zoladex may be more persistent, which can lead to an increased need for gonadotropin. At the appropriate stage of follicular development, the administration of gonadotropin is stopped and then human chorionic gonadotropin is administered to induce ovulation. The monitoring of the treatment, the oocyte extraction and fertilization procedures are carried out in accordance with the established practice of this medical institution.
