Uses of Tramfan MF 500mg/250mg Tablet

Treatment of Dysmenorrhea (period pain) and menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding).

Medicinal Benefits

Tramfan MF 500mg/250mg Tablet is a combination of two drugs, namely: Tranexamic acid and Mefenamic acid. Tramfan MF 500mg/250mg Tablet is used to treat abdominal pain, dysmenorrhea (period pain), and menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding). Additionally, Tramfan MF 500mg/250mg Tablet is also used to treat severe blood loss, swelling in various body parts, fever, inflammation, and migraine headache. Tranexamic acid is an anti-fibrinolytic agent that helps the body's natural blood clot process by preventing fibrin's breakdown, this stops fibrinolysis, a process that stops blood clot formation. Mefenamic acid is an NSAID that works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger in the body, known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes that make other chemical prostaglandins. By blocking the COX enzyme's effect, lesser prostaglandins are produced, which reduces mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site. Together, Tramfan MF 500mg/250mg Tablet helps treat heavy bleeding and pains/cramps during periods.
