Lupron Injection Strengths

For treating symptoms of advanced prostate cancer or precocious puberty (puberty that starts too early), there is only one strength of Lupron® (leuprolide acetate) injections: 1 mg per 0.2 mL, available in 2.8-mL multidose vials. The medicine is administered just below the skin (subcutaneously) once daily.
 
To relieve prostate cancer symptoms, the standard dose of Lupron is 1 mg once daily. When used to treat precocious puberty, the dose will depend on the weight of the child and how he or she responds to it.
