Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To propose a protocol for minimizing medical complications associated with the use of cyproterone, medroxyprogesterone, and depot leuprolide to treat paraphilia.

METHOD:

Review of the relevant literature.

RESULTS:

Certain patient populations should not be treated with these medications, and medical complications associated with each can be detected early and avoided.

CONCLUSIONS:

For each drug, a series of screening tests prior to use and scheduled testing during use can minimize potential medical complications.
