Gestone is indicated for the treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
It is also indicated for the maintenance of early pregnancy in cases of documented history of 3 or more prior consecutive unexplained miscarriages and in selected cases as an adjunct to successful treatment of infertility with techniques such as in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) or gamete intra-fallopian transfer (GIFT) in order to facilitate uterine implantation of the fertilised ovum.
Gestone should be used cautiously in patients with conditions that might be aggravated by fluid retention (e.g. hypertension, cardiac disease, renal disease, epilepsy), with a history of mental depression, diabetes, mild to moderate hepatic dysfunction, acute intermittent porphyria, migraine or photosensitivity.
If unexplained, sudden or gradual, partial or complete loss of vision, proptosis or diplopia, papilloedema, retinal vascular lesions or migraine occur during therapy, the drug should be discontinued and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic measures instituted.
