About Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's

Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's belongs to the class of medications called ‘anti-fibrinolytic drugs’ used to treat abnormal or unwanted bleeding. It is used to control bleeding in conditions such as heavy periods (menorrhagia), nose bleeds (epistaxis), cervical surgery (conization of the cervix), prostate surgery (post-prostatectomy), bladder surgery (post-cystectomy), bleeding inside the eye (traumatic hyphaema) and a hereditary disease called angioneurotic edema (HANO). The solution form of this medicine is used before tooth removal (dental extraction) in hemophiliacs (people who bleed more easily than normal).

Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's contains ‘tranexamic acid’ which belongs to the class of ‘anti-fibrinolytic agents’. It is generally used for short-term treatment of bleeding. It acts by regulating the breakdown of blood clots. It blocks the release and action of plasmin which is an enzyme essential for the breakdown of clots present in the blood. This effect helps to slow down the bleeding.

Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's is available as a tablet and oral solution. The tablet form can be taken with or without food. The dose and duration of the medicine will be decided by your doctor based on your health condition. The solution dosage form is used as a mouth rinse before dental procedures. Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's may not cause any side effects when used orally. However, some patients may experience certain side effects such as feeling sick (nausea), diarrhea, and itchy skin. These side effects usually go away on their own. If you develop any other serious side effects such as vision problems while using Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's, consult your doctor immediately.

Traxido 500mg Sr Tablet 10's should be avoided if you are allergic to it or any other ingredients present in it. Do not take this medicine if you have a history of kidney disease, thrombosis (formation of blood clots in the blood vessels), disseminated intravascular coagulation (a disease where blood clots form throughout your body) and seizures (fits). Inform your doctor if you are taking birth control pills or fibrinolytic agents (medicines that dissolve blood clots). Also, inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding.
