Approximately 1 in 3 women will develop uterine fibroids at some point in their life.1 Physical symptoms of uterine fibroids include pain, anaemia, heavy menstrual bleeding, and pelvic discomfort.2 Uterine fibroids also take a psychological toll; 95% of uterine fibroid patients experience psychological distress.3 Ryeqo is a novel gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist combined with add-back therapy and is the first combination therapy licensed in the UK for the management of moderate to severe symptoms of uterine fibroids.4
Add-back therapy is a strategy of adding other medication during treatment with GnRH analogues with the aim to limit adverse events.5
Ryeqo is indicated for treatment of moderate to severe symptoms of uterine fibroids in adult women of reproductive age.4
Prescribing information for Ryeqo can be found here.
