What is Primolut N?

Primolut N is a hormone preparation. The preparation contains the synthetic hormone norethisterone, which is related to the natural luteal hormone produced in the ovaries, progesterone, and plays an important role in regulating menstrual periods and pregnancy. Primolut N 5mg is ideal for the strong and usually painful side effects of menstruation because the active ingredient usually leads to immediate relief.

What is Primolut N used for?

It is used for menstrual cramps and endometriosis. Endometriosis is a common disease associated with severe pain. This is how cysts and inflammation can settle on the ovaries. Primolut N is used when the abdominal pain is so severe that even the circulation and blood pressure are affected. It inhibits the strength of muscle contractions during menstruation. It is also used for menopausal symptoms.

In the case of uterine bleeding due to hormonal disorders, the doctor recommends a treatment of 10 days in total, the bleeding is usually stopped within the first three days. But to ensure that the treatment is successful, Primolut N must be taken over the entire 10 days. However, so-called withdrawal bleeding can still occur after you have stopped taking the drug, but this usually corresponds to normal menstruation.

Even if the bleeding has stopped, it is possible that spotting will occur. Here the taking of the tablets should not be interrupted. If the bleeding does not stop despite taking Primolut N regularly, inform the doctor immediately to clarify why the bleeding does not stop.

Since it is a prescription drug, it can only be used when the patient is under regular medical supervision.

It is not a contraceptive drug.

The effect and mode of action

The active ingredient norethisterone influences the body in such a way that it pretends that increased muscle build-up or breakdown would be unnecessary. Since the lining of the uterus receives the information from taking Primolut N that no change should take place, the contraction is weakened. The drug Primolut N has the positive effect that it greatly reduces pain.

Patients can take Primolut N preventively. It is then recommended to start this one day before the cycle. The effect of the drug occurs quite quickly due to the early intake and thus the pain is significantly reduced. If the drug is prescribed during the menstrual cycle, then the effect occurs about 2 hours after taking the tablet. It is recommended to take the drug throughout the cycle period, as the effect wears off very quickly.

Shortly after taking the tablet, the progesterone deficiency is compensated so that the patient hardly feels any pain and can therefore master her everyday life normally, despite her menstrual cycle.

How to take Primolut N 5mg

Taking Primolut N 5mg over a longer period of time is only recommended in the treatment of endometriosis and should be discussed with a doctor.

The daily dose of 5mg of one tablet should not be exceeded. In special cases, such as very heavy bleeding and pain, the dose can be increased to a maximum of two tablets, i.e. 10mg. But not anymore. The drug is also only taken during menstruation and not for a longer period of time. It is swallowed whole and with a glass of water. It can be taken independently of meals. However, patients with sensitive stomachs should take the tablet after meals. Eating on an empty stomach can cause nausea and gastrointestinal problems.

It is recommended to take one tablet in the morning or evening with normal use. The effect of Primolut N lasts about 8 hours. Taking two tablets makes it possible to get thru the day pain-free and have a restful nite.

The drug should be carefully stored out of the reach of children. It must not be exposed to temperatures above 30 degrees and must not be used beyond the expiry date.


The dosage also depends on the severity of the menstrual cramps. If the menstruation is particularly heavy and accompanied by heavy bleeding, it is advisable to start taking one tablet of Primolut N per day before the first day of the cycle. However, if the severe pain only occurs during the second part of menstruation, the patient can also take up to two tablets a day for two or three days. If the patient follows the doctor’s instructions, an overdose can be ruled out.

Interactions of Primolut N

The effect of Primolut N is impaired by taking antibiotics. The consumption of alcohol also leads to the cancelation of the medication effect. Medicines for epilepsy, tuberculosis or herbal medicines containing wort can also lead to a weakening of the effect of Primolut N 5mg. If interactions occur, the medication must be discontinued and the doctor consulted as soon as possible. Above all, you should inform the doctor or pharmacist of any intolerances, allergies, or other existing diseases.

Side effects

As with any medication, side effects can also occur when taking Primolut N. On the one hand, spotting can occur over a longer period of time, even if the drug has not been taken for days.

On the other hand, taking the tablet can lead to the stopping of menstruation, nausea, headaches, and gastrointestinal complaints are other side effects that can occur. There are isolated reports of tension pain in the chest. It is important that the side effects experienced by the individual patient are also reported to the doctor. So that he can act accordingly.
