Dosing Information for the Goserelin Acetate Implant
The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending mostly on the reason you are using the medication. As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
Because each implant contains a fixed amount of medicine, an overdose is not likely to occur. At this time, it is not known what to expect if too much of this medication is given. Seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have overdosed on this or any other drug.
What If I Forget a Dose of the Goserelin Acetate Implant?
If you miss an appointment to receive your goserelin acetate implant, contact your healthcare provider as soon as you remember. Try not to forget a dose of this medicine. Your symptoms may return if you are more than a few days late in receiving your regularly scheduled dose.
