In brief: Stops clot breakdown

Tranexamic acid (txa) is a drug that stops clots from breaking down.
It is currently approved for use by hemophiliacs undergoing dental procedures and by women with very heavy periods. It is being used more and more for helping to stop bleeding after major injury. Research has shown that it saves lives if given within 3 hours of major injury, especially in people who have low blood pressure.
