I just discovered that Eligard is superior to Lupron in one respect.
It is injected into fatty tissue as opposed to muscle and as a result maintains more stable levels of leuprolide acetate than do Lupron injections.
The one disadvantage is that it appears almost no insurance covers Eligard.
My question is of Lupron 1 month, 3 month, or 6 month injections how does the relative stability of their Leuprolide levels compare? And how do they compare with that of Eligard?
Does anyone have any knowledge, ideas or even inklings?
What about Firmagon (degarelix). I understand that it is an antagonist whereas Eligard and Lupron are agonists? Is that so? That doesn't sound so right to me?
