Description of Cyklokapron
Cyklokapron is an antifibrinolytic agent. Its active ingredient is Tranexamic Acid. It is given to a patient in the form of oral tablets as well as an intravenous injection.
Indications & Dosage of Cyklokapron
Cyklokapron is used for preventing bleeding during a tooth extraction. It is given to patients suffering from hemophilia, a bleeding disorder. It is also given to patients with a high risk of continuous bleeding, such as after an injury or surgery, during heavy menstrual bleeding, or heavy nosebleeds. The drug works by clotting the blood so that prolonged bleeding is prevented.
Each ml of Cyklokapron injection contains 100mg of Tranexamid Acid. Cyklokapron 10mg per kg of the patient’s weight is given just before the tooth extraction. After that, Cyklokapron 10mg per kg of weight is given to the patient 3-4 times a day for 2 to 8 days.
If you are using the oral tablet form of Cyklokapron, you will need to take one tablet 2 to 4 times a day, depending on your medical condition and response to treatment. Try to take the tablet at almost the same time each day.
