Fibristal Uses

Fibristal (Ulipristal) belongs to the class of medications called selective Progesterone receptor modulators. It is used to treat moderate-to-severe signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids in adult women who are in their child-bearing years.

Symptoms of uterine fibroids include heavy menstrual bleeding, Anemia, and pelvic pain or pressure. It works by blocking the effect of progesterone on the endometrium (lining of the uterus) while keeping estrogen levels in the normal range. Progesterone is responsible for the development and growth of fibroids, and by blocking this hormone, Fibristal (Ulipristal) causes fibroids to shrink and become less painful. Heavy menstrual bleeding usually stops within days of starting Fibristal (Ulipristal).

Fibristal (Ulipristal) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Fibristal (Ulipristal) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Fibristal (Ulipristal) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Fibristal (Ulipristal) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Fibristal (Ulipristal), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Fibristal (Ulipristal) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Fibristal (Ulipristal) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Fibristal (Ulipristal) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Fibristal Dosage

The usual adult dose of Fibristal (Ulipristal) is 5 mg taken once daily for a 3-month treatment course. The first tablet is taken at any point during the first 7 days of your menstrual period and continued once daily for 90 days. After finishing a treatment course of 3 months, you should wait to have 1 full menstrual cycle where you are not taking any medication before starting a second treatment course. The second treatment course can be started within the first 7 days of your next menstrual period.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Fibristal (Ulipristal) may be taken with food or on an empty stomach.
