Danogen 50

DANOGEN 50MG contains Danazol which is in a class of medications called androgenic hormones. It used to treat endometriosis (where the tissue that normally lines your womb and is shed during your period grows outside your womb). You may be given Danazol before or after surgery for the endometriosis. Danazol is a synthetic androgen. Androgens are hormones produced by the male testes. They are responsible for the functioning of the male reproductive system and the development of the male characteristics, such as facial hair and a deep voice. The ovaries also produce small amounts of androgens.

Always take DANOGEN 50MG exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not split, chew, or crush this medicine. Swallow the medicine whole, with water. It helps in the treatment of the endometriosis and has same effectiveness as the other hormonal treatments. However, it has androgenic (male-like) side effects, including weight gain, increased body hair and acne. Its unpleasant side effects and its tendency to adversely affect blood lipid (cholesterol) levels mean it is not usually the first choice of treatment for endometriosis.

USES OF DANOGEN 50MG

  • Endometriosis (where the tissue that normally lines your womb and is shed during your period grows outside your womb)
  • Painful or heavy periods (menorrhagia)
  • Painful breast disease but not malignant
  • Enlarged breasts (in both men and women)

HOW DANOGEN 50MG WORKS

DANOGEN 50MG does not cure endometriosis permanently. Rather, it suppresses its growth and development temporarily, so the disease may recur following treatment. It has a multiple effect on the body. Some of these effects combine to produce high levels of androgen and low levels of oestrogen in the body. This hormonal environment stops menstruation and suppresses the growth of endometrial implants, causing them to degenerate.

Most women will stop ovulating and menstruating by the second month of treatment, though this may depend on the dosage used. The symptoms of endometriosis usually begin to diminish by the end of the second month. Most women will resume ovulating and menstruating within 4–6 weeks of stopping treatment.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Always take DANOGEN 50MG exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not split, chew, or crush this medicine. Swallow the medicine whole, with water.
