SUPREFACT (BUSERELIN (AS ACETATE) | Sold as : SUPREFACT NASAL MFG : SANOFI
How does Suprefact work? What will it do for me?

Buserelin is a medication that has been designed to mimic the actions of natural gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH or LHRH), a hormone released from the hypothalamus gland in the brain.

The hypothalamus uses GnRH to send messages to the pituitary gland in the brain, which then sends messages to the ovaries in females, and the testicles in males, telling them to produce the sex hormones estrogen (females) and testosterone (males).

Normally, GnRH comes from the hypothalamus in pulses. If GnRH came from the hypothalamus all of the time (rather than in "pulses"), it would have the opposite effect and "turn off" hormone production. This is how buserelin works.

Buserelin is used for the treatment of prostate cancer. It helps prostate cancer by causing a reduction in the amount of testosterone in the blood. It is also used to treat endometriosis (a painful condition caused by growth of extra tissue inside or outside the uterus). It helps endometriosis by reducing the amount of estrogen in the blood.
