Full information about Megace

General Information On Megace

Megace is an oral medication which contains megestrol acetate, a synthetic alternative of the naturally occurring steroid hormone, and progesterone. The generic name of Megace is megestrol. The medication is used for the treatment of advanced carcinoma of the breast and endometrium. It is also prescribed to increase appetite and prevent weight loss in various conditions. Though it is not known how the drug boosts appetite, Megace can lead to high blood sugar if used for this purpose.

The exact mechanism of how Megace brings about antineoplastic effects against endometrial carcinoma is yet to be discovered, but it is speculated that a decrease in estrogen secretion and pituitary gonadotropin production are the factors responsible for it. The medication not only curbs the growth of hormone dependent breast cancer cells, but is also capable of eliminating and modifying the stimulatory effects of estrogen on those cells.

Megace has a direct effect on the lining of the uterine wall as well, so a patient must buy Megace only if prescribed, and it should be administered under the supervision of a doctor. The medication in the form of an oral suspension consists of inactive ingredients like purified water, sodium citrate, sucrose, citric acid, alcohol, lemon-lime flavor, xantham gum, sodium benzoate, and polysorbate 80, and 40mg of micronized megestrol acetate as the main ingredient.

A patient should consult his/her doctor if he/she has any allergies to the ingredients in Megace to prevent severe allergic reactions. One must also inform the doctor about his/her medical history, especially if he/she has diabetes, blood clots, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, kidney problems, unusual vaginal bleeding, and adrenal gland problems.
