BRAVELLE® (urofollitropin for injection, purified)

BRAVELLE® (urofollitropin for injection, purified) is a prescription medicine that contains hormones. BRAVELLE contains follicle stimulating hormone which stimulates healthy ovaries to make eggs. BRAVELLE is used for women who need medical help to get pregnant. Your doctor may prescribe more than one medicine as part of a pregnancy plan.

Important Safety Information

Do not use BRAVELLE if you: have ovaries that are not able to make eggs even with the use of hormones, are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, have problems with your thyroid gland or adrenal gland that are not controlled by taking medicine, have cancer in your female organs (ovaries, breasts, uterus), have a tumor of your pituitary gland or any other tumor in your brain, or have heavy or irregular vaginal bleeding and the cause is not known.

BRAVELLE may cause serious side effects. It sometimes stimulates the ovaries too much. This is called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) and can be a serious medical problem. OHSS may cause pelvic pain or breathing problems, or it may make you urinate less. In rare cases, patients with this problem have had serious lung problems. BRAVELLE can also cause blood clots and strokes. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have: severe pelvic pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sudden weight gain, trouble breathing, or decreased or no urination.
