Tranexamic Acid - Overview
Tranexamic acid, marketed under the brand name Lysteda and Cyklokapron, is a medication generally used for heavy menstrual bleeding. People who need a prescription for tranexamic acid use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Lysteda when appropriate to do so.
Tranexamic Acid - Mechanism of Action
Tranexamic acid belongs to a class of medications known as antifibrinolytic medications. A synthetic lysine amino acid derivative, tranexamic acid works by temporarily binding lysine receptor sites and moves plasminogen off of the surface of fibrin. The effect of this is to decrease the formation of plasmin from plasminogen, leading to increased structural integrity of the fibrin matrix. Tranexamic acid's overall effect by this mechanism is to reduce menstrual bleeding. Some work is being done on investigating tranexamic acid for melasma but no official indication has been given, making tranexamic acid for melasma an off-label use.
Tranexamic Acid - Dose and Cost
As Lysteda, tranexamic acid is available as tranexamic acid 650 mg tablets. Frequently, Lysteda is prescribed as two tranexamic acid 650 mg tablets taken three times per day for, at most, five days during monthly menstruation. Ultimately, the regimen used is dependent on the patient and her health characteristics and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. People with kidney issues will need specific dosing adjustments when taking tranexamic acid. Peak plasma levels occur at roughly three hours and the drug is largely excreted in the urine. Tranexamic acid is relatively affordable, costing approximately $1.70 per tranexamic acid 650 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Some insurance plans may cover some costs associated with a tranexamic acid prescription, depending on the indication. Also, tranexamic acid coupons may be available online, through a tranexamic acid copay card or through the manufacturer.
Can I Buy Tranexamic Acid Online?
Tranexamic acid is a prescription medication in the United States. Because of this restriction, tranexamic acid OTC is not available and it is not simple to buy tranexamic acid online as the first step is consulting with a medical provider. People who need a tranexamic acid prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider online who can prescribe Lysteda when appropriate to do so.
Tranexamic Acid - Side Effects
Tranexamic acid can cause side effects when used. Side effects that can occur from tranexamic acid use include back pain, headache, muscle pain, fatigue, cramps and joint pain. As Lysteda, tranexamic acid can cause visual symptoms and the medication should be discontinued immediately if symptoms occur. Tranexamic acid and alcohol should not be used at the same time. People who have a known allergy or hypersensitivity to tranexamic acid, Lysteda or similar medications should not use tranexamic acid. Before using tranexamic acid, it is necessary to discuss risks and side effects with a pharmacist and one's medical provider.
