Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

This medication is also known generically as 'tranexamic acid". Since you are a 31 year old, presumably healthy female, I am going to guess that this is being prescribed related to heavy menstrual cycles. In this case this is the usual dosing is:

Oral: 1300 mg 3 times/day (3900 mg/day) for up to 5 days during monthly menstruation

You mention that you are interested in side effects. Here are the side effects, listed generically with incidence:

Headache (50%)
Abdominal pain (20%)
Back pain (21%)
muscle pain (11%)
Nasal/sinus symptoms (25%)

1% to 10%:
Fatigue (5%)
Anemia (6%)
Arthralgia (joint pain) (7%)
muscle cramps/spasms (7%)

As listed above, the most common side effect is headaches. I hope this helps. Please let me know if my assumptions about your question are incorrect. DR XXXXXXX
