Danocrine review

Danocrine is also known by the brand name Danozol, and goes by Cyclomen in Canada. It is an oral medication, taken in capsule form, and used for several different medical conditions. Some of these conditions include pain or infertility due to endometriosis, fybrocistic breast disease, which is the tendency some women have to develop cysts in the breasts, and hereditary angioedema, a condition that causes swelling in the face, arms, legs, throat, bowels, or sexual organs. Doctors do occasionally prescribe it for other conditions, as well.

Since danocrine is a hormone-based medication, there are several precautions a patient should take before beginning danocrine therapy. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to other hormone-based medications, such as androgens or anabolic steroids, you may be susceptible to reacting negatively to danocrine, as well. You should not take danocrine during pregnancy, either, since the infusion of hormones may cause female fetuses to develop some male characteristics. Some doctors recommend taking a pregnancy test before even beginning a course a danocrine. For the same reason, nursing mothers should not take this medication, since it can be transferred to the baby through the breastmilk, disturbing the baby’s already delicate hormonal balance. Children also should not be give danocrine, since it can cause male-like changes in girls, or cause boys to begin puberty early. Danocrine has not been tested on older adults, but there is the possibility that an infusion of male hormones can be a risk factor for prostate cancer in older men.

There are also other medical disorders that might make danocrine react negatively for the patient. You absolutely must make sure your doctor knows if you have a blood clotting disorder, liver disease, tumors of any sort, but especially those caused by an excess of male hormones or situated on the genitals, or unusual vaginal bleeding. In the case of the above conditions, danocrine should not be prescribed. Other conditions which could be made worse by danocrine include porphyria, Type 2 diabetes mellitus, epilepsy, heart disease, kidney disease, or migraine headaches.

If, after all the above cautions, you are cleared by your doctor to use danocrine, you must be absolutely sure to take this medication exactly as prescribed. You must not stop taking it before the course of the prescription set by your doctor runs out. Different people will take different doses of danocrine, depending upon the strength of the dose prescribed and the condition it’s being prescribed for. Danocrine might be prescribed very differently in different people with different conditions.

For endometriosis, the course of treatments can last from three months to as long as nine month. If a patient is being treated for breast cysts, or fibrocystic breast disease, she will probably be prescribed capsules twice a day for about six months, unless the cysts go away sooner than that. And as a preventative measure for attacks of angioedema, the dosage is usually twice or three times every day, though that may be lowered depending upon the severity of the condition. Do not double up your doses of this medication.

Side effects for danocrine can be severe and unwanted. For women, there may be enlargement of the clitoris, unnatural hair growth, or a deeper voice. For people with diabetes, it may affect blood sugar levels. It may also cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight than usual, so people taking this medication should try to stay out of the sun, especially between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Another side effect of taking danocrine is that your period may be irregular, or it may stop altogether. This is normal, and your periods should resume within two or three months after being done with danocrine. You shouldn’t use birth control methods that use hormones, however, and if you suspect you have become pregnant, see your doctor immediately. Other side effects are not very common, but they may include headache, anxiety, acne, increased oiliness in the hair or skin, muscle cramps, swelling of the feet, unusual tiredness, or rapid weight gain. In women only, decreased breast size may occur, along with irregular periods and weight gain, and in men only there may be changes in the semen and a decrease in the size of the testicles.

Danocrine is also sometimes used in patients with other conditions, as well. These may include gynecomastia, which means abnormal breast development in men or boys; menorrhagia, which means very long periods; and precocious puberty in girls. The same cautions apply to treating these conditions with danocrine as are listed above.
