Uses of Zendol Capsule

Benefits of Zendol Capsule

In Treatment of Benign fibrocystic breast disease

Benign fibrocystic breast disease is a non-cancerous condition in which the breast tissues become lumpy and tender to touch. Such changes may be seen normally during certain hormonal changes in menstrual cycles. However, these symptoms can be bothersome for some women. Zendol 100 Capsule effectively manages such changes and relieves these symptoms. Take it as prescribed by the doctor and do not stop taking it unless your doctor asks you to stop.

In Treatment of Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue like the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places. The main symptoms include pain in your lower stomach or back, period pain, pain during and after sex, constipation, diarrhea and feeling sick. It can also make it difficult to get pregnant. Zendol 100 Capsule will help relieve these symptoms and makes you feel better. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective and you may need other medicines or procedures to help control endometriosis.

In Treatment of Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Zendol 100 Capsule may help reduce PMS symptoms such as mood swings, anxiousness, tiredness, bloating, breast tenderness and headaches. Lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and using relaxation techniques may also be helpful.

Painful periods have a big impact on everyday life of a woman and there is not always an obvious cause. Zendol 100 Capsule helps relieve pain and cramps during periods. You may have to use painkillers (NSAIDs) as well for rapid pain relief. Ask your doctor about which are most suitable.
