Lysteda, which is generically known as Tranexamic acid, is a drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat menorrhagia (heavy periods). It is manufactured by Ferring Pharmaceuticals. Many women choose to use these kinds of drugs in order to mitigate their periods; however, it is important to remember that Lysteda is not a birth control medication.Furthermore, the drug was inititially used for the purposes of preventing excessive blood loss during surgery.

The advantage of Lysteda over similar medications is that it is a non-hormonal product like birth control pills are. In April 2011, Ferring Pharmaceuticals has added a number of side effects to the label, including possible visual and ocular problems.

Lysteda side effects are serious. They include, amongst other things, the following:

  • Blood Clots

  • Back Pain

  • Abdominal Pain

  • Muscle Pain

  • Anemia

  • Fatigue

  • Shortness of Breath

  • Tightening of the Throat

  • Ocular Issues

  • Ligneous conjunctivitis

The reason why this drug might cause blood clots is because Lysteda has a significantly more antifibrinolytic activity than older analogs. Hence, it allows the protein fibrin to form a greater framework for blood clots. This is why, of course, it reduces menstrual bleeding, but at the same time, can potentially increase the risk of blood clots.

It is said that women who are overweight or who smoke are most at risk for injury from taking Lysteda.

Lysteda is alternatively known by a number of names, and it used in a number of applications:

  • Lysteda

  • Cyklolapron

  • Femstrual

  • Cyclo-F

  • Espercil

Tranexamic acid is also used for the following uses:

  • to arrest postpartum haemorrhage (PPH)

  • to prevent blood loss in cardiac surgery

  • to prevent bleeding in hemophiliacs

  • in hereditary angiodema
