Hi,

Susten 400mg tablet contains progesterone, a natural female sex hormone which is used to treat menstrual and pregnancy related issues that are caused due to hormonal imbalance. Progesterone is important in the regulation of ovulation and menstruation. It is used to cause menstrual periods in women who have not reached menopause but are not having periods due to a lack of natural progesterone in the body. This medicine helps to prepare the uterus for pregnancy by causing the uterus lining to thicken. This increases the chance of a successful pregnancy.

Side effects of Susten 400 are headache, abdominal pain, abdominal bloating, dizziness, depression, breast tenderness, hot flashes, vaginal discharge, join pain, urinary incontinence, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, hair loss, chest pain, fever and chills, blurred vision, diarrhoea or constipation, allergic reactions etc.

Take care. Hope I have answered your questions. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Zubayer Alam, General And Family Physician
