INTRODUCTION

EMPROGEST SR 300MG contains Progesterone which belongs to the group of medicine called progestins. It is used to treat abnormal uterine bleeding characterized by heavy periods, irregular periods or bleeding between periods, after sex, or during menopause. It can also be used to treat benign mastopathies which are painful disorders of the breast and symptoms of pre-menopause (such as hot flushes, anxiety, depression or vaginal dryness).

The most common side effects of taking this medicine are headache, dizziness, stomach pain, bloating and breast pain. Contact your doctor immediately, if you see any changes in breasts like dimpling of the skin, changes in the nipple or presence of any lumps. Avoid consumption of alcohol, driving or travelling, because this medicine may make you feel dizzy and drowsy. Take this medicine once daily preferably at bedtime.

This medicine is not recommended for use in patients who have cancer in the breast or uterus, blood clotting disorders or unexplained vaginal bleeding. Consult your doctor before taking. EMPROGEST SR 300MG should be used with caution in pregnant and breastfeeding women. This medicine is intended for use only in adult females and not recommended for use in children.

USES OF EMPROGEST SR 300MG

Progesterone taken orally, binds to and activates the progesterone receptor (PR) present in the stromal cells during the secretory phase of menstrual cycle and during pregnancy.
