Were you looking for information about Lupron? Luprin is a common misspelling of Lupron.
If you have advanced prostate cancer or central precocious puberty (puberty that begins too early), your healthcare provider may prescribe Lupron® (leuprolide acetate). This medicine comes in the form of an injection that is administered just under the skin (subcutaneously) once daily. It works to slow down the growth of cancer cells and to stop puberty by preventing the production of sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone). Fluid retention (edema), hot flashes, and weakness are among the possible side effects of Lupron.
