What is Lynoral?
Lynoral containing the active ingredient ethinylestradiol is a synthetic version of the female sex hormone oestrogen. The medication works by preventing ovulation, thickening the mucus in the cervix and changing the lining of the uterus. It can be used for the management of menopausal symptoms (hormone replacement therapy) such as post menopausal osteoporosis, breast cancer, dysmenorrheal, dysfunctional uterine bleeding and female hypogonadism. Some women may also take it along with other medications as an oral contraceptive or birth control pill and to regulate the menstrual cycle.
How is Lynoral used?
Lynoral should be taken orally once per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a drink of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and cycle of treatment as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the therapy. The tablets should be taken whole and not broken, crushed or chewed prior to consumption.
Patients using Lynoral may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Decreased sex drive
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Unexplained rapid weight changes
- Mental or mood changes
- Vision problems
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Disturbances of menstrual cycle
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
