AT YOUR FIRMAGON® INJECTION APPOINTMENT
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.
*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
The starting dose consists of2 injections (120 mg each) that will quickly begin to suppress testosterone.
After that, you will receive a single, smaller (80 mg) injection every 28 days.
