Triptorelin (Decapeptyl)



I work in the Policy and Campaigns Team at Breast Cancer Care and I wanted to ask if anyone currently taking, or has, the drug triptorelin (Decapeptyl) for primary breast cancer? You could help shape our response to the SMC assessment that will decide whether it is available on the NHS in Scotland.


The SMC will be assessing triptorelin with tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor as a treatment for premenopausal women with hormone receptor positive primary breast cancer after surgery and chemotherapy.


We want to hear from people who have received this drug combination to help shape what we say to the SMC about it.
