What is Cyklokapron 500mg Used for?
Cyklokapron (Tranexamic Acid)
Cyklokapron is a medication which is used to prevent or treat excessive blood loss. It is used as a short-term therapy in patients with hemophilia especially to prevent and reduce bleeding when they are getting a tooth extraction. Furthermore, Cyklokapron is also used in people who have some other high-risk bleeding disorders to manage bleeding namely after surgery, injury, postpartum bleeding, nosebleeds or during heavy menstrual bleeding. In addition, it is also used in cases of hereditary angioedema.
As Cyklokapron belongs to the group of drugs called anti-fibrinolytic, it acts by helping in the formation of a blood clot and; thus, prevent bleeding.
Cyklokapron is easily available, and you can buy Cyklokapron online from Canada Pharmacy.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
