What Is Amicar?

Amicar (aminocaproic acid) belongs to a family of drugs called hemostatics or antifibrinolytic agents. Other names for this medication include:

  • ε-aminocaproic acid
  • ε-aminohexanoic acid
  • EACA
  • ε-norleucine

How Does Amicar Work?

Your body reacts to an injury by stopping bleeding and repairing damaged tissues. While doing so, it is critical that you do not develop excessive blood clots; otherwise, they might obstruct blood flow in your vessels. 

Numerous proteins and enzymes regulate this delicate bleeding-clotting mechanism. For example, a protein—fibrin—helps form blood clots. On the other hand, an enzyme called plasminogen dissolves fibrin clots to prevent excessive clotting in a process known as fibrinolysis. 

Some people have unusually rapid fibrinolysis, putting them at a higher risk of bleeding-associated complications. Amicar works by delaying or stopping fibrinolysis. Hence, it is also known as an antifibrinolytic agent.

  • Intracranial hemorrhage associated with thrombolytic treatment (off-label use)
  • Mouth and mucosal bleeding in patients with hemostatic defects

How Is Amicar Supplied and Used?

Aminocaproic acid comes in the following preparations and strengths:

  • Oral tablets (500 mg, 1000 mg)
  • Oral liquid (1.25 g/5 ml)
  • Solution for intravenous (IV) infusion (250 mg/ml)

Oral preparations 

Store at room temperature in a dry place. 

  • Tablets: Take with or without food as directed by your physician.
  • Oral Liquid: Measure the liquid dose carefully using the measuring device that comes with the drug. Take with or without food as directed by your physician.

IV infusion 

Store the intact vial at room temperature. Diluted solutions are stable at 39°F and 73°F for 7 days. 

Your healthcare provider administers the IV solution by infusion, using NaCl injection 0.9%, dextrose injection 5%, or Ringer’s Injection as a vehicle (diluent). The manufacturer does not recommend injecting the undiluted solution into the vein. 

You will typically receive a higher dose during the first hour and a lower dose afterward. The treatment lasts for about 8 hours or until the bleeding is controlled.
