When should a Supprelin implant be removed?
This is a question you should be addressing with your daughter Pediatrician as SUPPRELIN® LA (histrelin acetate) subcutaneous implant is an under-the-skin (subcutaneous) implant that contains the medicine histrelin, a gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH). SUPPRELIN LA is used for treatment of children with central precocious puberty (CPP). Best,
