Overview

Introduction

DUB 5 Tablet is used to treat various menstrual problems including painful, heavy, or irregular periods, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and a condition called endometriosis. It is a man-made version of the natural female sex hormone progesterone.

DUB 5 Tablet may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at the same time each day. The dose and how often you take it depends on what you are taking it for. Your doctor will decide how much you need so as to improve your symptoms. Swallow the tablets whole with a drink of water. You should take this medicine for as long as it is prescribed to you.

The most common side effects of this medicine include headache, nausea, abdominal pain, vaginal spotting, dizziness, and breast tenderness. Let your doctor know if these bother you or appear serious, as there may be ways of reducing or preventing them. Some side effects may mean you should stop taking this medicine, including if you develop jaundice, migraine or changes to your speech or senses (eyesight, hearing, smell, taste and touch). You should also stop taking it if you become pregnant or if your blood pressure becomes too high.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have diabetes, have a migraine, or any liver disease ever had any problems with your blood circulation. Your doctor should also know about all other medicines you are taking as many of these may make this medicine less effective or change the way it works. This medicine can affect the results of some blood and urine tests so make sure any doctor treating you knows that you are taking it.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Does DUB reset your cycle?

Yes, DUB may reset your cycle. It is usually given for about 10 days to help manage heavy periods. Usually, your periods will resume within 3 days after stopping the medication. Your body may correct itself after 3-4 cycles and your period cycle may resume as before.

Q. Can you bleed while taking DUB?

Yes, DUB may cause breakthrough bleeding or spotting in some cases. This more likely occurs if the medicine is not taken as prescribed, such as taking lower than prescribed dose or not taking it 3 days before your periods start. It is, therefore, very important that you take DUB as prescribed.

Q. How quickly does DUB stop bleeding?

DUB is advised to patients having heavy periods or prolonged periods. The usual dose is prescribed to be taken 3 times a day for 10 days. The bleeding will stop usually within 48 hours of taking it. However, consult your doctor if the bleeding continues.

Q. Can I get pregnant while taking DUB?

Yes, you can get pregnant even if you are taking DUB. It is not a birth control pill. Therefore, you should use contraceptives or other birth control methods while you are on DUB. Consult the doctor if you have any other related concerns.

Q. For how long do I need to take DUB?

The dose and the number of days for which you need to take DUB will depend on the condition for which you are being treated and how well the medicine works for that condition. For example, when taken for endometriosis it is usually prescribed once daily for 6 to 9 months or until breakthrough bleeding becomes bothersome. When DUB is used to bring on a normal cycle in women who have stopped menstruating, it is usually supposed to be taken once a day for 5 to 10 days during the second half of the planned menstrual cycle. Always take the medicine exactly as advised by your doctor.
