I have been taking tranexamic acid since October 2008. I take 3 (500 mg) tablets 4 times a day. I have not had bad side effects -indijestion mostly - I just hate taking so many tablets. I have suffered continuous sometimes very heavy bleeding for a couple of years. I take a good food supplement and 3 iron (food state so they don't constipate) tablets each day. The tranexamic acid stops the bleeding and after a week or so free from bleeding I reduce the dose and then stop it altogether. I then have a fairly normal period which if it does not stop after 8 days I start taking the tranexamic acid again, I also start taking the tranexamic acid again if the bleeding gets too scary and it usually normalises or stops within 3 days. I have spoken to a friend who helped developed this drug and he says that it is very well tested and has been around for a long time. The alternative for me is depo-provera injections - bad indijestion or loss of calcium and maybe weight gain - maybe I'll stick with the acid!
