Utovlan tablets (norethisterone 5mg) are from a group of drugs called ‘Progestogens.’ Norethisterone is no longer under patent and may be produced by many pharmaceutical companies.
Side Effects of Norethisterone
Although the vast majority of people do not experience any negative effects using norethisterone, there are a few side effects to be aware of. Some of which are more common than others.
The less common side effects include: wheezing, rashes or feeling faint. However, there are more serious effects than can occasionally occur, in the event of which, you must stop taking the tablets and immediately contact your doctor. For instance, becoming short of breath or feeling an intense pain in your chest.
Moreover, it is good to be aware that although these tablets will help you to regulate your periods, you may still get instances of spotting between periods or miss a period altogether, which is perfectly normal.
How does Norethisterone work?
Utovlan tablets work by holding off your period for a certain duration of time (dependent upon how many tablets you take). The active ingredient found within these tablets – Norethisterone – works by regulating the growth and shedding of your womb lining, working in a similar way to how the hormone progesterone would naturally work.
It is a popular treatment for women who wish to delay their period for whatever reason. Normal dosage for delay of period onset is one 5mg tablet taken 3 times a day 4–5 days before your period is due, continuing for as long as needed. Dr Fox can supply enough tablets to delay your period for up to 17 days.
