Firmagon Information

Drug name: Firmagon
Generic name: Degarelix
Use: Prostate Cancer

Firmagon is a drug which is prescribed to assist in the treatment of advanced hormone dependent prostate cancer, which is cancer of the male prostate glands. The active ingredient is called Degarelix. It is a man-made version of a protein which works to reduce testosterone. It belongs to the group of drugs called GnRH receptor antagonists.

Firmagon Reviews

“My husband was quite embarrassed about buying the drugs from our local pharmacy, so I had a look online and I’m so glad I did! The price was much lower than where we normally buy it, and he didn’t have to feel embarrassed picking it up from the local store. The service was really great too!” – Janet, New Orleans
