Consult your doctor: For precocious puberty, the 11.25 mg Lupron (leuprolide) every 3 months is sufficient 90-95% of the time. If her breasts are getting bigger or she continues to grow too rapidly, your daughter's ped endo might consider giving the Lupron (leuprolide) every 2 months but it is usually not necessary to give it more often as it is designed to be released slowly enough to last 3 months
