One co-administration study was a controlled, randomized and double-blind study included 51 women treated monthly with LUPRON DEPOT alone (See Table 8) and 55 women treated monthly with LUPRON DEPOT plus norethindrone acetate daily. Women in this trial were followed for up to 24 months after completing one year of treatment. The other study was an open-label single arm clinical study in 136 women of one year of treatment with LUPRON DEPOT and daily norethindrone acetate 5 mg, with follow-up for up to 12 months after completing treatment.
LUPRON DEPOT ® (leuprolide acetate for depot suspension) mg and 3-month mg concomitantly with iron therapy are indicated for the preoperative hematologic improvement of patients with anemia caused by uterine leiomyomata. The clinician may wish to consider a 1-month trial period on iron alone inasmuch as some of the patients will respond to iron alone. LUPRON DEPOT may be added if the response to iron alone is considered inadequate. Recommended duration of therapy with LUPRON DEPOT mg is up to 3 months. The 3-month mg dosage form is indicated only for women for whom 3 months of hormonal suppression is deemed necessary.
