Cyprotron drug information

Drug Information: Cyproterone belongs to a group of drugs called anti-androgens. This means that it blocks the function of male sex hormones called androgens and reduces the production of male hormones. This anti-androgen drug can be used to treat two different diseases - prostate cancer and to control sexual desire in men with hypersexuality.

In prostate cancer, cancer cells need the male hormone testosterone to grow and multiply. Hormone therapies such as cyproterone inhibit the effect of testosterone on prostate cancer cells, thereby reducing the growth of cancer cells. Cyproterone helps reduce the recurrence, symptoms, and side effects of other treatments used for cancer or after surgery.

In men with hypersexuality, cyproterone is used to control their libido. If your doctor prescribes cyproterone for hypersexuality, he or she will sign an agreement with you before starting treatment.

Cyproterone, a brand name Cyprostat, is used to treat prostate cancer, and Androcur is used to control hypersexuality.
