Cetrorelixum review

Cetrorelixum is prescribed to women to avoid premature ovulation especially while controlled ovarian stimulation is occurring. Cetrorelixum is a medicament distributed under the brand name Cetrodine by Merck Serono. It is primarily used to treat patients who are suffering from hormone-sensitive cancers of the breast and prostate.

Cetrorelixum is administered to patients through injection. If you are going to use the medicament at home, you must follow the exact instructions given by your doctor. This includes the proper mixture of the solution and preparation of the medicament. Before preparing the medicament, it is very important to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to avoid infections. Inject the medicament under the skin ideally in the stomach area. If you have any doubts on what to do, it is best to consult your doctor.

The standard dose is usually 3mg or 0.25mg once a day. This can be given in a single dose, in smaller quantities or as prescribed by your doctor.

If you have missed a dose, skip the missed dose and consult your doctor before continuing with the normal dosage. Never use more than what is prescribed as it will lead to an overdose. Overdose of Cetrorelixum does not post any life threatening risk but it is recommended to seek immediate medical attention.

Patients may experience allergic reactions that may cause tightening of the throat, swelling of the lips or tongue and breathlessness.

Some women have developed Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) due to the use of Cetrorelixum. Some of the known symptoms of OHSS include abdominal pain, swelling, pelvic pain, diarrhoea, nausea and difficulty in breathing.

Some patients may also experience cephalalgia and irritation on the skin where the medicament was injected. Other side effects may occur which are not listed here. If any unwanted effects occur, inform your doctor immediately.

Cetrorelixum is a prescribed medicament and should not be used by anyone without consulting a doctor. It should not be shared with any person even if the same treatment is needed.

Cetrorelixum is under the pregnancy category X by the FDA, which means that this medicament is not safe for pregnant women because there are cases of birth defects due to the use of Cetrorelixum. If you are breastfeeding, you must also consult a doctor before taking this medicament to avoid any harm to the baby.

Cetrorelixum should not be used for patients with severe kidney problems. If there is a need to take Cetrorelixum, you must consult your doctor and weigh the benefits against the risks involved.

Do not use Cetrorelixum if you have allergies to medicaments such as Antagon, Naferelin, Zoladex, Lupron and Goserelin.
