Uses of Cymin Capsule

Side effects of Cymin Capsule

Common
  • Tiredness
  • Nasal congestion (stuffy nose)
  • Musculoskeletal (bone, muscle or joint) pain

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Tiredness
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Eat a well-balanced diet to keep your energy levels up. Do not drink too much alcohol. Do not drive or use tools or machinery until you feel better. Other things that can help include doing some gentle exercise every day, prioritizing and pacing your activities and having a short nap if you need to. If you are still having problems after a week, speak to your doctor, as they may want to change you to a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Nasal congestion (stuffy nose)
    Try saline spray or nose drops. Taking steam inhalation or placing a warm wet towel on your face can also help. Use a humidifier if the air in your house is too dry. Using an extra pillow at night to lift up your head can also improve your breathing. If your condition does not improve, you should talk to your doctor. The doctor may be able to prescribe you certain over-the-counter medicines that can help improve your condition.
  • Coping with Musculoskeletal (bone, muscle or joint) pain
    Tell your doctor straight away because sometimes the muscle pain may be a sign of something more serious. A lower dosage or a different medication might be needed. Try to relax the cramping muscle by stretching it and holding the stretch. You might massage the muscle or apply a heat pad to the area after stretching. Avoid exercising too much. Stay well-hydrated. Do not take over-the-counter pain relievers unless the doctor prescribes it. Your doctor may also suggest taking supplements, such as calcium, magnesium oxide or potassium oxide depending on your needs.

FAQs

Q. Can Cymin cause pulmonary embolism?

Cymin promotes blood clotting and can rarely cause blood clot to travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism) which can turn fatal sometimes. Pulmonary embolism is not a common side effect in patients taking Cymin but can occur in overdosing, patients with long bedrest or prone individuals. Evidence suggests that the increased risk of clot can be due to some other additional risk factors as well.

Q. Can you take Cymin on an empty stomach?

Cymin can be taken with or without food with a glass of water. The medicine should be swallowed as a whole and should not be crushed or chewed.

Q. Can I take Cymin for more than 5 days?

The dose and duration of this medicine is decided by the type of disease for which it is prescribed. For heavy bleeding during monthly menstruation, it is usually taken for up to 5 days. For other conditions it can be prescribed for less than 5 days and even more that 5 days which is decided by the prescribing physician.

Q. Does Cymin affect fertility?

No, Cymin does not affect fertility. It is taken for heavy menstrual bleeding and evidence suggests no interference of this medicine with ovulation (release of eggs from the ovaries). Therefore, this medicine is not a type of contraceptive medicine and it will not affect your chances of becoming pregnant.

Q. Can Cymin be taken for nose bleeding?

Yes, Cymin can be used for nose bleeding. It helps to clot the blood and prevent bleeding. If the bleeding is frequently observed then the medicine can be even taken for a week.
