... side of my lower abdomen, where my ovary is, and feel sick to my stomach. I stopped taking the pills when my period stopped, 2 days ago, but still have the abdominal pain. Is this normal? How long does Lysteda stay in your system?
Lysteda's 1/2 Life is 11 hours meaning the drug only stays in your body for 11 hours. This is why the drug is dosed 2 650mg 3x Daily. It's in and out quickly.
The pain in your abdomen does not appear to be Lysteda related. I would schedule an appt with your Gynecologist to do further tests.
The correct way to take Lysteda is to start taking the pills as soon as the 1st signs of your period (spotting). You should take the drug on the days your period was heavy before being prescribed Lysteda. You will notice the lighter period in the 1st day but if your period was historically heavy for 3 days of your period, continue to take it those additional 2 days or your heavy flow will return.
