Is it safe to take dolonex dt 20 mg for heavy flow and pain during periods ?

my gynecologist suggested i take 20 mg of dolonex dt when i have my period . I have periods and it aches a lot with heavy flow . i went through an ultrasound and checkups and there doesnt seem to be any problem. the doc says heavy bleeding and pain happens to some people and maybe reduced after the person has a child. I am advised to take 2 tablets of dolonex dt after food (breakfast) on the 1st day and one tablet after food (breakfast) on the next three days to reduce bleeding and pain I have tried taking another tablet called spasmo proxyvon before and it dint help It does help a little but i am concerned about my health. Is it dangerous?

Thanks for your query
Dolonex -DT is a tablet containing medicine piroxicam which is a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug.
When taken as advised by your doctor and for a specified time it should not cause any major problems other than increased acidity and gastritis.
Long term use of any medicines should be avoided unless recommended by your doctor.
If you feel better after taking the medicine during periods you may continue as advised.
Take care.

You are probably suffering with menorrhagia, specific treatment for is based on a number of factors, which includes:-Your overall health and medical history,The cause and severity of the condition, Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies,The likelihood that your periods will become less heavy soon, Your future childbearing plans, Effects of the condition on your lifestyle & Your opinion or personal preference
Drug therapy may include:
Iron supplements. If the condition is accompanied by anemia, your doctor may recommend that you take iron supplements regularly. If your iron levels are low but you're not yet anemic, you may be started on iron supplements rather than waiting until you become anemic.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or naproxen (Aleve), help reduce menstrual blood loss. NSAIDs have the added benefit of relieving painful menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea).
Oral contraceptives. Aside from providing effective birth control, oral contraceptives can help regulate menstrual cycles and reduce episodes of excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding.
Oral progesterone. When taken for 10 or more days of each menstrual cycle, the hormone progesterone can help correct hormonal imbalance and reduce menorrhagia.
The hormonal IUD (Mirena). This type of intrauterine device releases a type of progestin called levonorgestrel, which makes the uterine lining thin and decreases menstrual blood flow and cramping.
It is not dangerous. It is curable. Consult Gynecologist for proper Treatment.
