How will FIRMAGON be given?

FIRMAGON is given at a doctor’s office monthly as a deep subcutaneous (below the skin) injection into your abdomen.

During your injection, tell your doctor if you have any of these symptoms: trouble breathing or wheezing, severe itching, or swelling of your face, lips, mouth, or tongue.

You should receive an injection of FIRMAGON every 28 days (every 4 weeks) to help keep your testosterone and PSA levels low*

*PSA level is a nonspecific measurement that may indicate cancer progression. These results should be evaluated with caution because of the broad range of patient types in the clinical study. No evidence has shown that the speed at which PSA declines is related to clinical benefit. Therefore, PSA level should not be seen on its own as evidence of the effectiveness of FIRMAGON.

FIRMAGON is given every 28 days

Month 1

The starting dose consists of
2 injections (120 mg each) that will quickly begin to suppress testosterone.

Month 2+

After that, you will receive a single, smaller (80 mg) injection every 28 days.

Month to Month

Set up the appointment for your next injection while you are at the office for your current injection.


No need for waiting or antiandrogen therapy: FIRMAGON provides surge-free testosterone suppression starting on day 1
