In females, ETEX 500MG TABLET is used to treat spotting (bleeding between menstrual periods) and excessive or prolonged bleeding during menstruation (with or without an intrauterine device) in the absence of any organ defects.

Before taking ETEX 500MG TABLET, inform your doctor if you are suffering from any kidney, liver or heart diseases to avoid unwanted side effects.

HOW ETEX 500MG TABLET WORKS

ETEX 500MG TABLET is an antihemorrhagic medicine that helps to stop bleeding. It works by increasing blood cells (platelets) ability to stick together and aids in the formation of the blood clot during the first stage of haemostasis (the body's normal response to an injury that stops bleeding). Additionally, it decreases blood loss at the site by increasing blood capillary resistance.
