There is no experience of overdosage in clinical trials. In single dose toxicity studies in mice and rats, the subcutaneous LD50 of triptorelin was 400 mg/kg in mice and 250 mg/kg in rats, approximately 500 and 600 times, respectively, the estimated monthly human dose based on body surface area. If overdosage occurs, therapy should be discontinued immediately and the appropriate supportive and symptomatic treatment administered.
TRELSTAR is contraindicated in individuals with a known hypersensitivity to triptorelin or any other component of the product, or other GnRH agonists or GnRH [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
TRELSTAR may cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Expected hormonal changes that occur with TRELSTAR treatment increase the risk for pregnancy loss and fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Use In Specific Populations]. TRELSTAR is contraindicated in women who are or may become pregnant. If this drug is used during pregnancy, or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, the patient should be apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus.
