1. Was ist Tranexamsäure Accord und wofür wird es angewendet?

Tranexamsäure Accord enthält Tranexamsäure, die zu einer Arzneimittelgruppe gehört, die

Antihämorrhagika bzw. Antifibrinolytika (Mittel zur Blutstillung) genannt werden.

Tranexamsäure Accord wird bei Erwachsenen und Kindern über 1 Jahr zur Vorbeugung und

Behandlung von Blutungen angewendet, die durch einen die Blutgerinnung hemmenden Prozess,

genannt Fibrinolyse, verursacht werden.

Die Anwendungsgebiete sind u. a.:

starke Monatsblutungen bei Frauen

Blutungen im Magen-Darm-Bereich

Blutungen bei Harnwegserkrankungen, nach Prostataoperationen oder Operationen am Harntrakt

Operationen an Ohren, Nase oder Rachen

Operationen am Herzen, im Bauchraum oder gynäkologische Eingriffe

Blutungen, die durch Arzneimittel zur Auflösung von Blutgerinnseln verursacht wurden.

2. Was sollten Sie vor der Anwendung von Tranexamsäure Accord beachten?

Tranexamsäure Accord darf nicht angewendet werden,

wenn Sie allergisch gegen Tranexamsäure oder einen der in Abschnitt 6 genannten sonstigen

Bestandteile dieses Arzneimittels sind

wenn Sie derzeit eine Erkrankung haben, die zu Blutgerinnseln führt

wenn Sie an einer so genannten Verbrauchskoagulopathie leiden, bei der Blut im gesamten Körper

anfängt zu gerinnen

wenn Sie Nierenprobleme haben

wenn Sie schon einmal Krampfanfälle hatten.

Wegen der Gefahr von Hirnschwellungen (zerebralen Ödemen) und Krampfanfällen werden

Injektionen in den Raum unterhalb der harten Hirnhaut (intrathekale Injektion) und in die

Hirnkammer (intraventrikuläre Injektion) und die Anwendung im Hirngewebe (intrazerebral) nicht

empfohlen.

Wenn Sie glauben, dass einer dieser Punkte auf Sie zutrifft, oder wenn Sie sich nicht ganz sicher sind,

sprechen Sie vor einer Behandlung mit Tranexamsäure Accord mit Ihrem Arzt.

Warnhinweise und Vorsichtsmaßnahmen

Sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt, wenn Sie glauben, dass eine der nachfolgend genannten Gegebenheiten

auf Sie zutrifft, damit er entscheiden kann, ob Tranexamsäure Accord für Sie geeignet ist:

Wenn Sie Blut im Urin hatten, kann Tranexamsäure Accord zu einem Verschluss der Harnwege

führen.

Wenn bei Ihnen das Risiko von Blutgerinnseln besteht.

Wenn Sie ausgeprägte Blutgerinnsel oder Blutungen im ganzen Körper haben.

(Verbrauchskoagulopathie), kann es sein, dass Tranexamsäure Accord für Sie nicht geeignet ist.

Wenn Sie bereits einmal Krampfanfälle hatten, sollte Tranexamsäure Accord nicht angewendet

werden. Zur Vermeidung von Krampfanfällen bei der Anwendung von Tranexamsäure Accord

muss Ihr Arzt die geringstmögliche Dosis verabreichen.

Wenn Sie Tranexamsäure Accord über einen längeren Zeitraum anwenden, sollte besonders auf

eine mögliche Störung des Farbensehens geachtet und die Behandlung falls erforderlich

abgebrochen werden. Bei kontinuierlicher Langzeitanwendung von Tranexamsäure Accord sind

regelmäßige augenärztliche Kontrollen (Augenuntersuchungen einschließlich Sehschärfe,

Farbensehen, Augenhintergrund, Gesichtsfeld etc.) angezeigt.

Anwendung von Tranexamsäure Accord zusammen mit anderen Arzneimitteln

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker, wenn Sie andere Arzneimittel anwenden, kürzlich andere

Arzneimittel angewendet haben oder beabsichtigen andere Arzneimittel anzuwenden. Dies gilt auch

für rezeptfrei erhältliche Medikamente, Vitamin- und Mineralpräparate, pflanzliche Mittel und

Nahrungsergänzungsmittel.

Insbesondere sollten Sie Ihrem Arzt mitteilen, wenn Sie folgende Arzneimittel einnehmen:

andere Arzneimittel zur Steigerung der Blutgerinnung (so genannte Antifibrinolytika)

andere Arzneimittel zur Vermeidung von Blutgerinnseln (so genannte Thrombolytika)

orale Kontrazeptiva.

Schwangerschaft und Stillzeit

Wenn Sie schwanger sind oder stillen, oder wenn Sie vermuten, schwanger zu sein oder

beabsichtigen, schwanger zu werden, fragen Sie vor der Anwendung dieses Arzneimittels Ihren Arzt

oder Apotheker um Rat.

Tranexamsäure geht in die Muttermilch über. Daher wird die Anwendung von Tranexamsäure Accord

bei stillenden Frauen nicht empfohlen.

Verkehrstüchtigkeit und Fähigkeit zum Bedienen von Maschinen

Es wurden keine Studien zur Verkehrstüchtigkeit und zur Fähigkeit zum Bedienen von Maschinen

durchgeführt.

3. Wie ist Tranexamsäure Accord anzuwenden?

Anwendung bei Erwachsenen

Anwendung bei Kindern

Bei Anwendung von Tranexamsäure Accord bei Kindern über 1 Jahr orientiert sich die Dosierung am

Ihr Arzt wird die für das Kind richtige Dosierung festlegen und entscheiden, wie lange dem Kind

Tranexamsäure Accord verabreicht wird.

Anwendung bei älteren Patienten

Eine Verringerung der Dosis ist nur notwendig, wenn ein Hinweis auf eine eingeschränkte

Nierenfunktion vorliegt.

Anwendung bei Patienten mit eingeschränkter Nierenfunktion

Falls Sie Nierenprobleme haben, wird Ihre Dosis von Tranexamsäure Accord unter Umständen

reduziert werden. Ihr Arzt wird die Dosis anhand eines Bluttests festlegen.

Anwendung bei Patienten mit eingeschränkter Leberfunktion

Es ist keine Verringerung der Dosis notwendig.

Art der Anwendung

Tranexamsäure Accord sollte nur langsam in eine Vene verabreicht werden. Tranexamsäure Accord

darf nicht in die Muskulatur injiziert werden.

Wenn bei Ihnen eine größere Menge Tranexamsäure Accord angewendet wurde als vorgesehen

Wenn bei Ihnen eine größere Menge Tranexamsäure Accord angewendet wurde als vorgesehen, kann

es zu einem vorübergehenden Blutdruckabfall kommen (z. B. können Sie sich schwindlig fühlen oder

das Gefühl haben, ohnmächtig zu werden, wenn Sie vom Sitzen aufstehen). Informieren Sie

umgehend Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker.
