Generic Name: cetrorelix (injectable) (see TROE reh licks)
Brand Names: Cetrotide

What is cetrorelix?

Cetrorelix blocks the effects of the naturally occurring gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). GnRH controls the release of another hormone, luteinizing hormone (LH), which induces ovulation (release of an egg from the ovary) during the menstrual cycle. During hormone treatment for ovarian stimulation, premature ovulation may lead to eggs that are not suitable for fertilization. Cetrorelix blocks this undesirable premature ovulation.

Cetrorelix is used to prevent premature ovulation during controlled ovarian stimulation.

Cetrorelix may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

Cetrorelix is intended for subcutaneous (under the skin) administration. If you are administering this medication at home, your doctor will give you detailed instructions on how to mix the solution and administer the injection. Do not inject cetrorelix if you are not sure how.

Wash your hands well with soap and water before preparing and administering this medication.

To prepare the injection:

  • On a clean surface, lay out everything that you need. Flip off the plastic cover of the vial. Wipe the aluminum ring and the rubber stopper with an alcohol wipe. Take the injection needle with the yellow mark and remove the wrapping. Take the pre-filled syringe (filled with sterile water for injection) and remove the cover. Put the needle on the pre-filled syringe and remove the cover. Push the needle through the center of the rubber stopper of the vial. Inject the water into the vial by slowly pushing the plunger of the syringe. Leave the syringe on the vial. Gently shake the vial until the solution is clear and without residue. Avoid forming bubbles during dissolution.

  • Withdraw the entire contents of the vial into the syringe. If liquid is left in the vial, invert the vial, pull back the needle until the opening of the needle is just inside the stopper. If you look from the side through the gap in the stopper, you can control the movement of the needle and the liquid. It is important to withdraw the entire contents of the vial. Detach the syringe from the needle and lay down the syringe.

  • Take the injection needle with the grey mark and remove its wrapping. Put the needle on the syringe and remove the cover of the needle. Invert the syringe and push the plunger until all air bubbles have been pushed out. Do not touch the needle or allow the needle to touch any surface.

To administer the injection:

  • Choose an injection site at the lower abdominal wall, preferably around the belly button. If you are on a multiple dose (0.25 mg) regimen, choose a different injection site each day to minimize local irritation. Take the second alcohol wipe and clean the skin at the injection site. Inject the prescribed dose as directed by your doctor or healthcare provider.

Use the solution immediately after it is mixed. Throw away any medicine that is left over.

Never reuse a needle or syringe. Dispose of all needles and syringes in an appropriate, puncture-resistant disposal container.
