I broke the diluent of Luprolex so I want to know if there is any diluent that I can use to administer it to the patient
Firstly we could have made use of some more information like full brand name and dosage but you can add this detaiI.
I don't know why but finding the diluent composition was extremely difficult but this is one of two (of many) results and the most comprehensive, I think, for your situation.
Formulations of this medicine, as you are aware, come in two parts: the active component and the diluent.
Leuprorelin Acetate: the diluent is: "Sterile Solvent: Each ml contains carmellose sodium 5 mg, mannitol (E421) 50 mg, polysorbate 80 1 mg, glacial acetic acid up to 0.05 mg in Water for Injections".
"It is slightly viscous fluid" presumably so as to make the suspension more stable even though it has to be used immediately. I'd gladly be found wrong but I strongly doubt saline is even remotely suitable i.e. (don't use it as it lacks the physical characteristics of the original diluent).
Ask your pharmacist first and then maybe try phoning/writing to the manufacturer or distributor and see if the diluent component can be purchased separately (if it is inert; you may need a prescription regardless).
