Let me guide you.
Irregular bleeding can occur due to various causes.
ya pls go ahead my frnd is also here
the medicine given to your friend is a drug that is known to stop any bleeding.
Now since that has not helped her,
she will need an evaluation to know the cause of this excessive bleeding.
ususally how many tablets we can take?
of trapic 500mg
continuing it for 2 more days will help is it?
It is generally suggested for a week
she just took for 3 days..
And if by a week it does not reduce, then she needs to be reviewed.
and she says she took 4 tabs and stopped it
but she can continue it now again or?
You mean, the bleeding has stopped now?
i told she took 4 tabs for 2 days and stopped it seems
u daid she can take till 1 week na..
so..she s just asking if she can continue with it
and take for a week?
The usual dosage of this drug is 500 to 1000mg per day
which can be taken for a week.
okie..thanks for the info..
but for now..wat do u suggest?
When was her last dose?
I mean when did she take her last medicine?
26 & 27th she took for 2 days it seems and she stopped
can she start taking those tablets again?
there was gap of 2 days na..
is it okie? please suggest
If she had taken additional dosage, that effects of those pills will come down in 48 hours time.
She may take then for 2-3 days more
in the dosage as suggested by her gynecologist, that is not more than 2 tablets a day
If it does not reduce
then she would need to review with her gynecologist
surely..she will start right now then..her next dosage
for the complete evaluation.
thanks alot for the suggestion
Surely she will visit over the weekend then
please ask your friend to take iron capsules too.
oh wats dat
tablets name please?
She may take cap hemup. This is available over the counter.
She can take these capsule one per day half an hour after food.
This will prevent her from becoming anemic.
Hope you have followed what I have suggested,
she will continue medicines for a week - 2 per day along with iron tabs
