Introduction

Agopride Injection is used in the treatment of prostate cancer. It is also used to treat endometriosis (endometrium of the uterus grows excessively and causes symptoms like pain, heavy or irregular periods), uterine fibroids and central precocious puberty (very early puberty).

Agopride Injection is given as an injection under the skin by a qualified medical professional.  Your doctor will decide what dose is necessary and how often you need to take it. This will depend on what you are being treated for and may change from time to time. You should take it exactly as your doctor has advised. Taking it in the wrong way or taking too much can cause very serious side effects. It may take several weeks or months for you to see or feel the benefits but do not stop taking it unless your doctor tells you to.

Decreased libido, increased sweating, fatigue, muscle weakness, and hot flashes are some very common side effects of this medicine. The long-term use of medicine may cause weakened bones and reduction in bone mineral density. You are advised to take vitamin D and calcium supplements while taking this medicine. It might cause menstrual periods to stop for a period of 7- 12 weeks, inform your doctor if menstrual bleeding continues even during the treatment.

Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have a history of drinking alcohol, smoker, and osteoporosis. Many other medicines can affect, or be affected by, this medicine so let your healthcare team know all medications you are using. This medicine is not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. The use of effective contraception by both males and females during treatment is important to avoid pregnancy.

કેવી રીતે વાપરવું (How to use Agopride Injection in Gujarati)

કેવી રીતે કામ કરે છે (How Agopride Injection works in Gujarati)

Agopride Injection એ મગજમાં હાઈપોથેલ્મસ દ્વારા ઉત્પન્ન થતા હોર્મોન જેવું સમાન છે. તે એસ્ટ્રોજનના પ્રમાણ (સ્ત્રીના કુદરતી હોર્મોન) અને ટેસ્ટોસ્ટેરોનના પ્રમાણ (પુરુષમાં કુદરતી હોર્મોન) ને ઘટાડીને કાર્ય કરે છે. સ્ત્રીઓમાં એસ્ટ્રોજનના પ્રમાણને ઘટાડવાથી સ્તનનું કેન્સર અને એન્ડોમેટ્રિઓસિસની સારવાર કરવાની એક રીત છે. પુરુષોમાં ટેસ્ટોસ્ટેરોનના પ્રમાણને ઘટાડવાથી પ્રોસ્ટેટ કેન્સરના કોષોને ફેલાતા અને વૃદ્ધિ પામતા ધીમા થઈ શકે અને અટકાવી શકે, જેની વૃદ્ધિ માટે ટેસ્ટોસ્ટેરોન જરૂરી છે.

Q. Is Agopride a hormonal medicine and can it be given in pregnancy?
