Especially on the back and chest.I have been on this medication for 8 months now. It worked fine in the beginning but, every since I started I have been getting terrible back and chest acne (before I went on this medication it was very rare for me to get any kind of facial or body acne). Please let me know if this has happened to you. Thanks
It's unfortunate that no one has answered.
Acne does not appear to be a known side effect of tranexamic acid, but if your acne started when you started taking it then it is very possible that tranexamic acid is the cause of your acne.
Perhaps discuss with your doctor ... try and stop it for a while (if at all possible) and see what happens.
