Tranexamic Acid 500mg Tablets

Tranexamic Acid is an antifibrinolytic medication used to prevent excessive bleeding. It works by blocking the breakdown of blood clots. Tranexamic Acid is most commonly used by women suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding but can also be used by patients following bladder, prostate, or cervical surgery, with traumatic hyphema and haemophiliacs after tooth extraction. It is available in tablet form without the need to see a GP when obtained through Prescription Doctor. 

However, hormone treatment like Norethisterone 5mg Tablets, which can postpone periods for up to 17 days, is recommended if one is looking to delay a period.

How Does Tranexamic Acid Work and What Are Its Uses?

Tranexamic Acid helps your blood to clot, preventing excessive blood flow out of the body. 

In the case of medical procedures, it usually comes as an injection to treat or prevent excessive blood loss from major trauma, postpartum bleeding, surgery, and tooth removal.

Tranexamic Acid can also be used to treat Hereditary Angioedema (HAE), a condition which causes parts of the body to swell.

It can be used for individuals with haemophilia, either as a preventative measure before surgery or as a treatment when excessive bleeding occurs.

As Tranexamic Acid is an anti-fibrinolytic, it can also be used to treat hyperfibrinolysis (excessive bleeding) in patients, particularly after surgery.

Tranexamic Acid for Periods

The effects of heavy menstrual bleeding can be debilitating, contributing to increased fatigue, excessive pain, and even affecting your mental health. You may suffer from abnormally heavy periods if you need to use a tampon or pad more than every two hours or if your bleeding lasts for more than seven days.

500mg Tranexamic Acid tablets can be used for five days during heavy menstrual bleeding to reduce the flow. As it increases the chances of clotting, it’s not recommended for women with normal or mild flows.

If you’re looking to delay your period, we recommend the alternative treatment of Norethisterone 5mg Tablets.

What is the Correct Dosage for Tranexamic Acid?

Typically, tranexamic acid should be taken in two 500mg tablets, three times a day. This may be lower for individuals with kidney problems.

If you have any questions, you can speak to our clinicians during the consultation process.

How Long Do I Need to Use Tranexamic Acid?

This medication is only used for a short time or until the bleeding has stopped.

For heavy periods, it’s advised to take tranexamic acid for up to five days from the start of menstruation. Where bleeding does not stop by itself, it can be taken for up to seven days.

Important Information About Tranexamic Acid and Possible Side Effects

Tranexamic acid may not be suitable for individuals who have experienced blood clots, epilepsy, kidney problems, or irregular periods.

We will assess whether this medication is right for you during your personal consultation.

There are no common side effects with tranexamic acid tablets, liquid, mouthwash, or injections.

Using Tranexamic Acid During Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

Tranexamic Acid is not recommended for use during pregnancy, however, a doctor may prescribe it if they think the benefits outweigh the risks.

Tranexamic Acid may get into breast milk in small amounts but is considered safe for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. It’s recommended that individuals who are breastfeeding and taking Tranexamic Acid speak to their doctor if they have any concerns.

Contraindications

It's important to note that Tranexamic Acid may interact with certain medications, including hormonal contraceptives, blood thinners, and anti-inflammatory drugs. Therefore, it's essential to inform your healthcare provider about all the medications you are currently taking to avoid any potential drug interactions.

If you have any further questions or concerns about Tranexamic Acid, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional who can provide personalized advice based on your specific medical history and needs.

Warnings

Tranexamic Acid should not be taken by individuals who are allergic to any of the ingredients, have serious kidney problems, have a blood clot in their blood vessels, or have disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Tranexamic Acid should be taken with caution by individuals with irregular periods, uncontrollable bleeding, a history of blood clots, kidney disease, or individuals taking oral contraceptives.

Consultation Required

Tranexamic Acid, 500mg Tablets, require an online medical consultation for review by a medical team. It is then determined whether it is safe, appropriate, and effective for an individual.
