Meprate Tablet Side Effects


My wife is 39 yrs old, she is having Thyroid from last 7 years when she delivered 2nd son. She is regularly consuming 10 tablets for ten days for every 2 months, then menstruation occurs in her again and after 15 days a 2nd menstruation happens. Please advise us on taking the Meprat tablet:

1. Whether any side effects will happen.
2. Will she have to continue meprate life long.
3. Weakness is lot while doing household work.
4. Leg pains and she is overweight (85kg).
5. Chest pain occurs occasionally.

It is really up to your wife as to whether or not she feels the need to continue to take this medication for the rest of her life. By no means is this medication necessary for survival, in my honest opinion. Has she talked to her doctor about other options yet?

NEVER take any medications without consulting a doctor!!!! Oh god, please, PLEASE go to a gynecologist and take advice... An internet forum will not give you any concrete advice.

Meprate increases weight even more. To treat any gynec problems one thing doctor advise is to reduce weight. Green sprouts & regular walk helps reducing weight and solves many problems.

Please do not continue or take life long any tablet without a review from a doctor. For tiredness you should check your HB Counts in blood, because after stopping Meprate heavy bleeding would have been there. Moreover, I was prescribed Meprate for reduction of thickness of Uterine wall not for thyroid. After stopping the medicine, I had undergone Ultrasound test. The uterine thickness was reduced to 5 cm from 12 cm and at the same time HB counts was also reduced from 12 to 9.
