We never have enough blood here (in Mexico), if any, but I often find myself in situations where I really could use some to transfuse (placenta abrupto, trauma, whatever).

I read about TXA on the forum and went over a few studies, decided to buy some to have on hand...pretty expensive stuff, so I only got a single box.

It seems most of the time (from what I'm reading) it's started before bleeding startto prophylacticaly decrease bleeding. I can't afford that.



So my question is directed at those who use it regularly, because I have never used it before:

Do any of you have any personal experience starting it during a case where there's already serious bleeding? Did it help? What kind of dose did you give?

Tips or suggestions when giving it?
