Triptorelin – 100mcg
Triptorelin is a prescription drug that stimulates the pituitary gland that is sold under the brand names Gonapeptyl and Decapeptyl. As Triptorelin stimulates the pituitary gland, it decreases the secretion of luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormones. This drug is mostly used to treat patients with prostate cancer. It may also be used for central precocious puberty, which pertains to the condition wherein a child enters puberty too soon.
Essentially, Triptorelin initially increases the levels of testosterone that the body produces. In women, it reduces the amount of estrogen in the body. There are many other uses of this drug although it is best to consult with a qualified physician before going that route.

Triptorelin is a GnRH analog, which is a hormone that consists of only 10 amino acids. GnRH is produced in hypothalamus and it initially stimulates the production of luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormones before decreasing it. These two hormones play a crucial role in producing testosterone.
But since Triptorelin is a prescription drug, it is best to get the advice of a doctor prior to using it, especially if its long-term effect is to reduce testosterone.
How Triptorelin Works
Triptorelin is a GnRH agonist, which stands for Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone. It stimulates the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that regulates and controls the male and female hormones. Triptorelin initially stimulates the pituitary for it to secrete luteinizing hormone for testosterone production and follicle-stimulating hormone for sperm production before inhibiting their functions.
This prescription drug is administered through injection, usually in the buttocks area. Dosing is very important to achieve the desired effect, regardless if it is being used for treating cancer or for other purposes as prescribed by a qualified physician. There may be a few side effects of using this drug, and it may include hot flashes, dizziness, headache, and immobility. Only a doctor can prescribe Triptorelin because it is important to determine the proper way of using it.
Triptorelin works by increasing one’s testosterone levels first before decreasing it. Its long-term effect is a decrease in testosterone levels, which is why it is used to treat patients with prostate cancer. Most prostate cancers spread because of high testosterone levels. Triptorelin will eventually decrease testosterone, but not before giving it a boost.
