Is it normal for meds to stop working in just a few months?
Hello, I have been told by my doctor that I likely have endometriosis, so she prescribed me tranexamic acid and mefanamic acid. They worked brilliantly the first two months; just a bit of cramping, but I mostly felt drowsy.
But it has been another two months (four months in total since starting on the tranexamic and mefanamic acid), and they were much less effective this time around. It was only one level below the amount of pain I would've been in if I hadn't taken the medication in the first place.
Is it normal for these meds to stop working so quickly?
I haven't suddenly built up an intolerance to them, because when I got my last before this one, I didn't get to take the tranexamic and mefanamic in time, so when I did I just threw it back up (I normally throw up when I'm on my period; I think it's because of the pain?), so for that day, I just had to manage without the meds.
Do I need to go back to the doctor? Should I increase my doses?
Thank you - Red.
