There are no known cases of intentional overdose with LYSTEDA and no subjects in the clinical program took more than 2 times the prescribed amount of LYSTEDA in a 24-hour period ( > 7800 mg/day). However, cases of overdose of tranexamic acid have been reported. Based on these reports, symptoms of overdose may include gastrointestinal (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea); hypotensive (e.g., orthostatic symptoms); thromboembolic (arterial, venous, embolic); visual impairment; mental status changes; myoclonus; or rash. No specific information is available on the treatment of overdose with LYSTEDA. In the event of overdose, employ the usual supportive measures (e.g., clinical monitoring and supportive therapy) as dictated by the patient's clinical status.


Thromboembolic Risk

Do not prescribe LYSTEDA to women who are

  • using combination hormonal contraception
  • known to have any of the following conditions:
    • Active thromboembolic disease (e.g., deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or cerebral thrombosis)
    • A history of thrombosis or thromboembolism, including retinal vein or artery occlusion
    • An intrinsic risk of thrombosis or thromboembolism (e.g., thrombogenic valvular disease, thrombogenic cardiac rhythm disease, or hypercoagulopathy)

Venous and arterial thrombosis or thromboembolism, as well as cases of retinal artery and retinal vein occlusions, have been reported with tranexamic acid.

Hypersensitivity to Tranexamic Acid

Do not prescribe LYSTEDA to women with known hypersensitivity to tranexamic acid [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS and ADVERSE REACTIONS].

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
