Pyrisept review

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

It is administered to patients through injection. If you are using 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 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, consult your doctor.

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

If you have missed a dosage, skip the missed dosage and consult your doctor before continuing with the normal dosage. Never use more than prescribed as it will lead to an overdosage. Overdosage of Pyrisept does not pose any life threatening risk but you need to seek immediate medical attention.

Patients may experience allergic reactions that include 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 Pyrisept. Some known symptoms of OHSS include abdominal pain, swelling, pelvic pain, diarrhea, wamble and difficulty in breathing.

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

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

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

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