The Difference Between US and European Orgalutran ivf fertility

This medication is sold under the brand Antagon in the US and is sold as a 0.25mg pre-filled syringe.
This ivf fertility medication is called Orgalutran in Europe. The name is different but it is manufactured by the same company as in the US.
Orgalutran is used as an adjunct therapy for some fertility problems in women. It is normally used alongside the hormone treatments for FSH and hCG as part of an IVF drugs program. The active ingredient Orgalutran works by blocking the release of the luteinizing hormone so ovulation is delayed and the chance of producing fertile eggs is increased.
Common Orgalutran side effects include: Redness/pain at the injection site, headache, mild nausea/stomach pain, and tiredness may occur.
Serious Orgalutran side effects that require urgent medical attention include: Unusual vaginal bleeding and Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) can cause fluid build up in the stomach, chest, and heart area.
