Tranexamic Acid (500mg), and Mefenamic Acid (250mg)

Tranexamic acid (500mg) and mefenamic acid (250mg) are commonly used in combination to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. Tranexamic acid is an antifibrinolytic agent that helps to reduce bleeding by slowing down the breakdown of blood clots. Mefenamic acid is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that helps to relieve pain and inflammation.

The usual recommended dose of the combination tablet containing tranexamic acid 500 mg and mefenamic acid 250 mg is one tablet taken three times a day during the menstrual cycle, starting at the onset of bleeding and continuing for 3 to 4 days or as prescribed by the healthcare provider. This medication should be taken with food to reduce the risk of stomach upset.

As with any medication, there are potential side effects to be aware of. Common side effects of mefenamic acid include stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, headache, and dizziness. Tranexamic acid can also cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, and dizziness. If you experience any unusual symptoms or side effects while taking this medication, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away. Additionally, patients with a history of blood clots or who are taking anticoagulant medications should use caution when taking tranexamic acid.
