Description of Synarel
Synarel is a drug used to treat precocious puberty in children. The generic name of this drug is Nafarelin Nasal.
Synarel is a nasal spray that is pumped directly into the nostrils.
Synarel is administered only as per the prescription of the doctor. The drug must be used two times a day to achieve the desired results.
Indications & Dosage of Synarel
Synarel treats puberty problems in male and female children. Doctors also advise some patients to buy Synarel in order to regulate menstrual cycle and sexual developments during puberty and fertility. The drug is also useful in treating endometriosis in women above the age of 18 years.
Synarel is a man-made form of protein that acts like a hormone in the body. The spray contains nafarelin acetate, which acts on the pituitary gland. Nafarelin works on the hormone gonaderelin (LHRH), thereby causing an increase in the release of sex hormones luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This results in the triggered release of estrogen.
Synarel should be used two times a day (morning and evening). The recommended dose of the spray is 200 micrograms in each nostril in the morning and evening. Women should use the spray between day two and day four of their menstrual cycle.
Before using Synarel for the first time, spray the medication gently 5-10 times in the air till the fine spray appears. Clear your nose before using the drug. Insert the tip of the bottle into your nostril and block the other nostril with your fingers. Gently inhale the drug in after pumping the spray. Clean the bottle tip with a tissue and store it at room temperature away from heat and moisture. Make sure that the bottle is kept upright.
Do not take an overdose of Synarel. Do not sneeze or blow your nose soon after using the spray. If you have a stuffy nose, you may use a decongestant as prescribed by the doctor. Don’t use the decongestant for at least 2 hours after using Synarel.
