TRANEXAMIC ACID: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

Lysteda (tranexamic acid) for Menorrhagia: “A miracle , an absolute miracle .I’ve been very sick for the past 3 years (so much so that I have chronic anemia , and have been requiring IV infusions from a hematologist and the anemia being so chronic has caused some irreversable damage to my body . So I had asked many doctors for help yet they all only seem to know about birth control or hysterectomy. Although I only took one month of treatment, my bleeding was about 70 percent reduced and I seemed to have a much more normal period. The pain was much less pain than I’m use to as my usual cramping and clotting was so severe it resembled labor and delivery of fist sized clots , and usually required a trip to the hospital for IV Toradol /Morphine for the quite severe pain. I can happily say I think this is going to heal me from the chronic Anemia with continued use and time. (side effects were not very noticeable if at all. Just much more normal period.)”

For Menstrual Disorders: “I started taking this medication about two months ago. I decided to go with this medication because it doesn’t mess with hormones and specifically helps with heavy menstrual flow. I started taking it and my flow is so much lighter. The only problem is, my cramps have become unbearable. Before I was on the medication, I never had cramps, just a very heavy flow.”

For Menstrual Disorders: “I started taking these pills about a year ago. I asked my doctor if she has anything that helps heavy bleeding. She prescribed tranex acid, and for the first couple of months every thing was ok. Six months into taking the meds I started feeling my heart beat racing, it would beat so fast that it would cause me to cough or I would feel my hear beat in my throat. But I didn’t think it was the pills at first, until I skipped a month and that’s when I noticed the rapid heart beats were calming down and stopped. Then the moment I started back taking them is when it started back beating rapid again.”

For Menorrhagia: “I suffer from both endometriosis and adenomyosis with near debilitating bleeding each month. Lysteda works for me as non-surgical treatment as long as I stay on top of each dose, 3x a day. If I’m late on a dose, the bleeding comes back full force which is a testament to how well it works and how quickly it moves through your system. Having said that, I’m finding that my cycles are lengthening on this medication. It is not supposed to be a side effect, but after the first month, my cycle was 4 days late and now on the second go around, 10 days late (still waiting).”

For Menstrual Disorders: “My doctor prescribed this for heavy menstrual bleeding.This stuff is awesome.I have fibroids. The heaviest day of my period lasts 24 hours, where I have to change my tampon every hour. I use the heaviest absorbency – Tampax Ultra 15-18 milligrams. I’m a light sleeper, so even during the night I would get up every hour to change. And the cramps – horrible. I was poppingadvil every 4 hours and they still didn’t ease all the cramping.This is my 2nd month of taking these. Blood loss is reduced by at least 75%. My heaviest day, I change every 3-4 hours now. The cramps are not nearly as bad. Also, I noticed after the 2nd day of taking this, my skin is so smooth and glowing. Like I’ve had a facial”
