Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?

Should any pediatric endo doc's use adult 11.25 im (3 month slow release dose) on a child every 28days 4 precious puberty for 1 year? Why / why not?

The supprelin implant which is annually replaced is also very effective. ...Read more
