Cyklokapron (Tranexamic Acid) is a prescription medication used to prevent and reduce excessive bleeding in patients with certain conditions such as dental surgery, cervical surgery, heavy menstrual bleeding, nose bleeds and bleeding inside the eye. Tranexamic acid is a man-made form of amino acid called lysine. This medication is used when the body breaks down blood clots too fast, not allowing the bleeding to stop and the wound to heal.
