Product Description

Danogen 50mg (Danazol)

Uses

Danazol is used to treat endometriosis (development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus, symptoms of which include abdominal pain, heavy periods, and infertility) and non-cancerous (benign) fibrocystic breast disease in adult patients not responding to other treatments. It is also used to prevent attacks of angioedema (swelling of eyes and lips) in patients with hereditary angioedema disorder.

How it works

Danazol belongs to a group of medicines called antigonadotropins. It relieves the symptoms by altering the effects of certain hormones in the body.

 Dosage and Administration

Danogen (Danazol) capsules are taken by mouth. These capsules are available in 50mg, 100mg and 200mg strength and your physician will tell you which one is most suitable for you. Female patients generally need to commence treatment during menstruation. Endometriosis may require a dosage which differs to that required for the treatment of breast fibrocystic disease, and hereditary angioedema in male or female patients is also treated with a different dosage. Your physician will decide the appropriate dosage required to treat your condition. There may be a need for regular blood tests throughout the course of treatment. If this is the case, ensure that you attend all scheduled medical visits.
