Lupron Depot-Gyn (leuprolide) Disease Interactions

There are 4 disease interactions with Lupron Depot-Gyn (leuprolide):

Moderate

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.

Moderate

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.

Moderate

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.

Moderate

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.
