Question: Is taking Sysron N for delaying periods safe? I am getting married on my date hence I need medicine to postpone my periods for two days. My doc told me to take 1 tab per day 3-4 days before date. But I have read at many places that 3 tabs per day are required for the same. Is any there any other tab apart from contraceptive to delay menstruals

Thanks for the query.

Yes, it is better to take three tablets per day as you read. Because sometimes single tablet may not be sufficient to maintain the hormonal levels which are required to postpone the periods.
You may have minor side effects like nausea, bloating sensation of the abdomen etc. which will subside soon.
Usually the tablets used for postponement for periods are hormonal pills only which can also act as contraceptives if taken according to the recommended schedule for that purpose.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

Thanks for the answer . Also is there any precaution I should take while in medication . Can I continue medicine for three weeks ? Also are there any symptoms on whose occurrence I should be consulting doctor.? I hope this medicine doesn't have any long term side effects.. For how many days I would be having these minor side effects ? Also I guess normal menstruation resumes two three days after I stop this medicine. Also there was another medicine prescribed by doctor MALA N. Which one according to you is better.

-You have to take the tablets at same time every day, delay of more than 3 to 4 hours or missing the tablet can cause withdrawal bleeding.
-If needed you can take, but better to limit the intake of tablets to the lowest possible days.
-Usually these may not cause severe side effects, if symptoms like severe head ache, swelling and tenderness of calf of the legs, difficulty in breathing etc. develops, stop the tablets and consult the doctor immediately.
-Usually it will not have long term side effects.
-You can have the minor side effects during intake of tablets.
-After stopping the pills within 5 to 6 days you can get withdrawal bleeding.
-If you want tablets for postponement of periods and also with contraceptive action you can use MALA N. But it has to be started form 1st day of periods for effective function.
If you mention your marriage date I can explain better.

Then I guess sysron n is fine . 9th dec is marriage date and usually my date is after 27-29 days. if i take 27 days into consideration then it falls on 10th dec. and what should be difference in time when taking each dose in a day ? Also when should i start taking tablets? Also in precaution in food,med ,etc.
Answered by Dr. Sree Gouri SR 5 hours later
Yes, sysron is better, as there is only 8 day gap for marriage.
You start the tablets 4 to 5 days before expected date of periods.
Better to take tablets at the same time every day. Gap should be 8 hours between the tablets.
Like 7am-3pm-11pm.
No precautions needed in food. If you want to use any medicines for any reason, once take the opinion of your doctor before starting.

I had a discectomy 2wks ago for a ruptured disk. Since then I have had several bouts of nausea, vomiting and either constipation or diarrhea. I had my post op followup today but I wasnt given an opportunity to speak or let anyone know how i was feeling. Upright, check- ok see you in a month type appt. I no longer get any hunger pains at all, food smells and tastes bad. Should I be concerned with this plus the vomiting, (I wake up with severe headaches and usually vomit soon after). Is this normal?

I started taking aspiren regimen 3 days ago without asking my doctor I have rapid heart beat and heart palpatations and anxiety disorder. I thought it would help, I felt better for last three days no rapid heartbeat as bad as it usually is but got severe headaches. Should I continue taking it today, also I thought it would be good for arthritis in my lower back, but the headaches terrible. My blood pressure has been low for the last month 110 over 78 and since taking the regimen it has gone up to 120 to 130 I think that s a better blood pressure

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much
