Hello Monica, Tranexa-mf is a combination of Tranexamic acid (500mg) & Mefanamic acid (250mg). Tranexamic acid prevents excessive bleeding in various conditions including heavy menstural bleeding. It is used as a first line non hormonal treatment in irregular, heavy periods.
Mefanamic acid belongs to pain killer (analgesics) group. It inhibits pain & reduces the volume of menstural flow.
Daily dose of Tranexa -mf is 2tab 3 times a day. You have not exceeded the prescribed dose.The chances of side effects for Tranexa-mf is rare at the dosage you are taking.
Mild side effects of Tranexa-mf are fatigue, headache, dizziness, diarrhoea & nausea. Rare & serious side effects are
1. vision problems including changes in colour vision.
2. migraine.
3. muscle & bone pain, problems in balancing.
4. swelling on both legs.
