Question: Zelitrex 500mg and Bleeding

 Candy26 - Wed Nov 04, 2009 7:49 am

I was diagnosed with genital herpes a week ago. The doctor prescribed Zelitrex 500mg, 2 tablets 3 times a day. Ever since I started taking the tablets I seem to be bleeding, not enough to call it a period but enough for me to change panty liners 5 times a day.At least once a day when I urinate, I can see a slimy substance with blood.

User avatar Hello,
I would not expect this to be a side effect of the medication, but everyone is different. If the spotting continues, be sure to mention it to the doctor but it may just be some hormonal fluctuation that will resolve on its own in time. Be sure to complete your treatment as prescribed.

Best wishes.
