What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Description

    Lupron Depot-Ped is a prescription medication for early puberty, which works to prevent early onset puberty in male and female children. More specifically, it is to treat central precocious puberty and is classified as GnRH agonist medication. Lupron Depot-Ped works by suppressing hormones that cause early onset puberty and this allows patients to have more natural and age-appropriate movement into puberty. This is important for very clear reasons, and it’s very fortunate that an effective early puberty prevention medication like this one is available to parents of these children.

    You can buy Lupron Depot Ped with a doctor’s prescription at most pharmacies, and always get the best price on this puberty delaying medication when you order medication online from Canada Pharmacy.

    Directions

    Lupron Depot-Ped injections are only to be made by a physician and in a medical-office environment.

    Administer Lupron pediatric on a 3-month or 1-month dosing schedule:

    Lupron Depot Ped 3-month dosing will have the child receiving 4 injections per year, and again always done at a physician’s office.

    Lupron Depot Ped 1 month dosing will have the child receiving 12 injections per year, as administered by a physician in their office.

    Ingredients

    The active ingredient in Lupron Depot-Ped is Leuprolide Acetate.

    Cautions

    Use with caution for children who have had a history of seizures, and only if specifically approved to do so by a doctor in these instances.

    Children with existing mental health concerns may not be suitable for Lupron Depot-Ped, and again this will be a determination made by your doctor.

    Interactions

    There is the possibility of drug interaction risks between Lupron Depot-Ped and SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressant medications and Bupropion (Wellbutrin) in particular. Tell your doctor of all medications that the child is currently taking before getting a prescription and going to buy Lupron Depot Ped.

    Side Effects

    Side effects from use of Lupron pediatric medication are uncommon, but some children may experience pain, swelling, or injection site abscess, weight gain, body pain, headache, acne or red, itchy rash and white scales (seborrhea), mood changes, or changes to genitalia. If any of these side effects are observed then you should discontinue use and speak to your doctor regarding other early puberty prevention approaches that might be a better fit for the child.
