    In a double-blind trial tranexamic acid (Cyclokapron) 1 g. four times a day for the first four days of menstruation, significantly decreased menstrual blood loss in women with menorrhagia for which no organic cause had been found. No difference in side-effects was noted between the active and placebo treatment.
