User Feedback


Q. What is Cetide and for what it is used for?

Cetide is an injectable preparation, which contains the active substance Ganirelix. It is used in women undergoing certain fertility treatments. It acts by blocking the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) thus preventing eggs from being released too early and gives the eggs time to grow properly. It is usually used in combination with other medicines.

Q. How and in what dose can it be used?

It is given as an injection, only at the hospital or clinic by the medical healthcare professional. The patient may be monitored regularly for the follicular development. The treatment duration depends on the ovarian response of the patient.

Q. What may be the possible side effects associated with it?

The most common side effect is local site reaction (redness of skin with or without swelling). You may also feel a headache or nausea. However, these effects are temporary, if these persist consult with your doctor. In addition, conditions like ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), and multiple births or birth defect, may also be associated with the use of this medicine.
