INTRODUCTION

ORSIK TABLET contains a combination of Mefenamic acid and Tranexamic acid, which belongs to the group of medicines called Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and antifibrinolytics. It helps to stop/arrest bleeding and relieve pain and swelling from various parts of the body. It is used to treat, control and prevent heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia) and menstrual pain, bleeding from the nose or eyes, following a tooth extraction, prostate surgery etc.

Tranexamic acid works by preventing the breakdown of blood clots by blocking the interaction of plasminogen with fibrin. Mefenamic acid works by preventing the release of a chemical messenger called prostaglandin by inhibiting an enzyme called cyclooxygenase that causes fever, pain and inflammation in the body (redness and swelling). Your doctor may suggest you take relevant medical tests to understand your existing condition.

ORSIK TABLET is not recommended for use if you have severe kidney disease or failure, blood clots (thrombosis), abnormal body movements such as fits or seizures, an abnormal or excessive bleeding disorder (consumptive coagulopathy), etc. ORSIK TABLET should be used with caution. Inform your doctor if you have blood in the urine, uncontrolled bleeding, blood clots throughout your body, irregular menstruation, mild to moderate kidney or liver disease, angioneurotic oedema (HANO), etc.
