A 25-year-old female asked:
My doc suggested me danocrine (danazol) (100mg) twice a day for pcos .is it suitable for the treatment of poly cystic ovary syndrome?

No: Danocrine (danazol) is a Progesterone like hormone with significant male hormone like effects. It may worsen rather than improve your pcos symptoms. It can never be taken when you are trying to get pregnant. It is used mostly for endometriosis, but less commonly these days.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
