Abundant menstruation, smear against the background of taking oral contraceptives, isolation after manipulation and surgery are a lot of inconvenience. True bloodsuckers in such situations are haemostatic drugs. Their variety on the pharmacy shelf allows you to use the most suitable for each situation. Instruction for the use of "Tranexam" claims that the drug can stop even heavy bleeding. Is this so, and what are the features of taking the medicine?

The content of the article

"Tranexam" can not only stop the bleeding, but also has antitumor, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic effect. It can be used in both menopause and during pregnancy with bleeding. It is important to know the features of taking and prescribing a medicine.

Composition and principle of action

The therapeutic effect of the drug is due to the content of tranexamic acid. The main effect of acid is associated with the effect on the process of blood coagulation.

The effect of taking

To maintain the liquid state of blood and protect against the formation of clots, the body needs a consistent completion of the chain of biochemical reactions. One of the stages is the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin. Tranexamic acid inhibits this reaction by providing an antifibrinolytic action. As a result, the rate of formation of blood clots increases and the bleeding stops.

Tranexamic acid has systemic and local hemostatic effect. In addition, it is able to influence the formation of kinins - substances responsible for the severity of inflammation and allergies. Tranexamic acid has an anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory effect. There are also known anti-tumor properties that are being studied at the present time.

Thus, tranexamic acid stops bleeding due to the fact that it makes the blood more dense, forming multiple blood clots. It does not affect either the vascular wall or the platelets themselves.

  • – при выполнении любых операций, а также в случае остро возникшего кровотечения в акушерско-гинекологической, хирургической, онкологической, стоматологической практике; as a hemostatic agent - when performing any operations, as well as in case of acute bleeding in obstetric-gynecological, surgical, oncological, dental practice;

In pregnancy and lactation

The drug is often used during pregnancy to stop bleeding. Its safety has not been proven in extensive studies, but the long-term observation of women, whom he is prescribed according to the evidence, proves the absence of a significant negative impact on the developing baby.
