Uses
Meftal (Mefenamic Acid) is known as a fenamate NSAID and it is used for alleviating pain which is mild to moderate in nature. It is also used to treat primary dysmenorrhoea, menorrhagia, arthritis (including osteoarthritis), toothaches, headaches and pain caused by other conditions. This analgesic medicine's therapeutic benefits are achieved by affecting and inhibiting the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins, which are lipid compounds that are derived from arachidonic acid. These prostaglandins are responsible for mediating the inflammatory response, and can promote inflammation. Antipyretic (fever reducing) properties are also exhibited by this medicine.

Dosage and Administration
Meftal (Mefenamic Acid) tablets are swallowed whole with water, and are taken either with or else after food. Adult patients may be told by their doctor to take 500mg (1 tablet) 3 times per day. Patients should note that this might differ, based on individual factors and you will need to listen carefully to the instructions of your doctor. If excess menstrual bleeding is being treated, the doctor may advise starting treatment on the first day that the excessive bleeding occurs. In all cases, doctors will advise using the minimum effective dose for the shortest possible period of time, so as to avoid side effects.

Side effects
Treatment with the NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) Meftal (Mefenamic Acid) is known to cause side effects, and some of these are listed here:

  • Anxiety
  • Bloated sensation
  • Belching or sour stomach
  • Headache or dizzy feeling
  • Hearing a buzzing or ringing noise

Patients should ensure that all side effects are reported to their doctor. Examples of serious reactions that will require immediate medical attention include soreness when passing urine, discoloured urine, eyesight problems, weight gain, blisters and other potentially severe side effects which have not been listed here.

Precautions
You should immediately cease treatment with these tablets and see your doctor if you notice blood in your stools, as this could be a sign of serious stomach ulcers or stomach bleeding.

NSAIDs may increase the risk of strokes, heart attacks or other severe conditions. Patients already suffering from heart problems may be more likely to be affected. Talk to your doctor about this before commencing treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Meftal (Mefenamic Acid) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
