My dermatologist doubled my dose of Melano TX tablet used for Melasma on 3rd Feb, before this I was on 1 capsule per day. This month my period is delayed by a week and I am not sexually active. My periods are normally on time. Does Melano TX have an effect on the menstrual cycle? Please let me know. Thank you.

Dear sir/madam! Myself PATIENT from orai Uttar Pradesh my age is 28 of years and I'm suffering from melasma scars over my face continuously from last five years, several times i got them treated from expert dermatologists but all gone vain. As i continue the medicine they disappear and when i discontinue the medicine they again appears. They look incurable. Just lately i heared about hormonal problem with thyroid gland which is highly responsible for this type of problem. Now should i go through thyroid gland test if there is any problem with that, that may be detected. Please send suggestions. Reply regards. PATIENT

FAQs

Q. Can Melano-TX cause pulmonary embolism?

Melano-TX 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 Melano-TX 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 Melano-TX on an empty stomach?

Melano-TX 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 Melano-TX 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 Melano-TX affect fertility?

No, Melano-TX 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 Melano-TX be taken for nose bleeding?

Yes, Melano-TX 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.
