Triptorelin Pamoate

What is Triptodur used for?

Triptorelin is used to stop early puberty (precocious puberty) in children. It helps to delay sexual development (such as growth of the breasts/testicles) and the start of menstrual periods. It also helps slow down early bone growth to increase the likelihood of reaching normal adult height. Triptorelin works by decreasing the amount of sex hormones that a child's body makes (estrogen in girls, testosterone in boys).
