What is Procur (Cyproterone Acetate) used for?

Procur is a tablet form of Cyproterone Acetate. Each tablet contains 50mg of the active ingredient Cyproterone Acetate. Procur is a an antiandrogenic hormone medication with several different uses. It is indicated in the treatment of unoperable prostate cancer, hirsutism in women, to decrease excessive sex drive in males and as part of a transgender hormone therapy regimen.

Procur (Cyproterone Acetate) is an anti-androgen, meaning it blocks or inhibits the male sex hormones. It does this in two ways. Firstly, it stops the androgenic hormones from attaching to androgenic receptors in the cells. Secondly, it works on the hormonal mechanisms responsible for adrogen production to reduce the concentration of androgens in the blood.

How should I use Procur (Cyproterone Acetate)?

The dosage of Procur you will require depends on the condition being treated. For prostate cancer and decreased sex drive the same dosage will usually be taken daily. For reducing body hair in women, it is often taken during a certain part of the mestrual cycle only. Follow your doctors directions exactly and do not change your dosage unless advised to do so by your doctor.

Most people will be given dosages of:

  • 50mg - 300mg daily to treat prostate cancer in males
  • 50mg twice daily to reduce excessing sex drive in males
  • 100mg per day from Day 1 to Day 10 of the menstrual cycle (taken in conjuction with a contraceptive pill) to reduce hirsutism in women.
