Lupron Depot-Gyn (leuprolide) Disease Interactions
There are 4 disease interactions with Lupron Depot-Gyn (leuprolide):
GnRH agonists (Includes Lupron Depot-Gyn) ↔ cardiovascular disease
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Cardiovascular Disease
Increased risk of developing myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death and stroke has been reported in association with the use of GnRH agonists such as leuprolide, and triptorelin. Cardiovascular risk factors should be evaluated carefully before treatment initiation. Patients should be monitored for symptoms and signs suggestive of development or cardiovascular disease and should be managed according to current clinical practice.
GnRH agonists (Includes Lupron Depot-Gyn) ↔ diabetes
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Diabetes Mellitus
Hyperglycemia and an increased risk of developing diabetes have been reported in men receiving GnRH agonists such as leuprolide and triptorelin. Caution is advised in patients with diabetes as treatment with these agents may risk glycemic control. Monitor blood glucose and/or HbA1c periodically in patients receiving treatment.
Leuprolide (Includes Lupron Depot-Gyn) ↔ QT interval prolongation
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Long QT Syndrome, Congestive Heart Failure, Electrolyte Abnormalities
Androgen deprivation therapy may prolong the QT/QTc interval. Health care providers should consider if benefits of therapy outweigh the potential risks in patients with congenital long QT syndrome, congestive heart failure, electrolyte abnormalities, or taking other drugs that can also prolong the QT interval. Consider periodic monitoring of EKG and electrolytes.
Leuprolide (Includes Lupron Depot-Gyn) ↔ seizures
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Seizures
Convulsions have been observed in patients taking leuprolide, including patients who have a history of seizures, epilepsy, or brain disorders, and in those taking medications associated with convulsions. Convulsions have also been reported in patients without any of these conditions. Caution is advised in patients with a history of seizures.
