Just wondering how safe and well tolerated norethisterone is

Customer Question

Just wondering how safe and well tolerated norethisterone is to take. I've never had it before. Also, is it safe if you are going on a 1.5hour flight -the pharmacists seemed concerned (my mother had a brain anuyerism but no other family history of blood clots)
Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I only take somac. I also have spirulina everyday - not sure if that is relevant
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am allergic to some cough mixtures but not sure on exact ingredient. I get heart palpitations from this. However, not taken any since I was a kid so not sure if this is still the case

There are many side effects but flying is safe and not contraindicated. Estrogen is known to increase clotting risk.

oh ok. Any common side effects that I should know about. I have googled it but sometimes it better to ask a doctor

Mood changes, sore breasts, late periods, acne etc likely.
