Answer

Antifibrinolytic agents

These agents are used as an ancillary measure and to diminish bleeding.

Aminocaproic acid (Amicar)

EACA diminishes bleeding by inhibiting lysis of hemostatic plugs. Can be used PO or IV.

Tranexamic acid injection (Cyklokapron)

Diminishes bleeding by inhibiting fibrinolysis of hemostatic plug. A PO form is also available.
