New Elata Tablet


Overview

Introduction

New Elata Tablet is a medicine used to treat uterine fibroids (a non-cancerous growth in the uterus). It is used for intermittent treatment and pre-operative treatment of uterine fibroid in women of reproductive age.

New Elata Tablet reduces symptoms like vaginal bleeding, prolonged periods and lower back pain. It can be taken with or without food, but take it at the same time to get the most benefit. It should be taken as your doctor's advice. The dose and how often you take it depends on what you are taking it for. Your doctor will decide how much you need 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 for you. It is important to note that this medicine makes birth control less effective so use proper contraceptive methods to avoid pregnancy.

The most common side effects of this medicine include the absence of menstrual period and headache. If these bother you or appear serious, let your doctor know. There may be ways of reducing or preventing them. This medicine might stop your period for some time, but it happens again when you stop taking the medicine. Usually, your periods get stops within 10 days of taking the medicine, consult with your doctor if you still experience heavy bleeding.

Before taking this medicine, let your doctor know if you have ever had liver problems or severe asthma. 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. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Your doctor may perform some blood tests to check for liver functioning.
