Generic Depo-SubQ Provera 104

Is Depo-Provera the Same Medication as Depo-SubQ Provera 104?

No -- Depo-Provera® (medroxyprogesterone intramuscular injection) is another injectable form of birth control that contains the same active ingredient as depo-subQ Provera 104, but it is not the same medication. There are a few important differences between the two medications, including the following:
  • Depo-Provera is given as an intramuscular (IM) injection, which means it is injected into a muscle. depo-subQ Provera 104 is given just under the skin (a subcutaneous injection).
  • Depo-Provera is not currently approved for relieving symptoms of endometriosis. However, it is sometimes used off-label for this use.
