The recommended initial dose of Menopur® for patients who have received a GnRH agonist for pituitary suppression is 225 IU. Based on clinical monitoring (including serum estradiol levels and vaginal ultrasound results) subsequent dosing should be adjusted according to individual patient response. Adjustments in dose should not be made more frequently than once every two days and should not exceed 150 IU per adjustment. The maximum daily dose of Menopur® given should not exceed 450 IU and dosing beyond 20 days is not recommended.
Once adequate follicular development is evident, hCG should be administered to induce final follicular maturation in preparation for oocyte retrieval. The administration of hCG must be withheld in cases where the ovaries are abnormally enlarged on the last day of therapy. This should reduce the chance of developing OHSS.
Dissolve the contents of one to six vials of Menopur® in one mL of sterile saline and ADMINISTER SUBCUTANEOUSLY immediately. Any unused reconstituted material should be discarded.
Parenteral drug products should be visually inspected for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit.
The lower abdomen (alternating sides) should be used for subcutaneous administration.
