PONSTAN TABS

Ponstan tabs contains Mefemanic acid 250mg. Mefenamic acid is a type of medicine called a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase (COX). Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced by the body in response to injury and certain diseases and conditions, and cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Mefenamic acid blocks the production of these prostaglandins and is therefore effective at reducing inflammation and pain. Mefenamic acid may also work by preventing the action of prostaglandins after they have already been formed.
Mefenamic acid helps with heavy and painful menstrual periods because period pain cramps are caused by the production of prostaglandins in the lining of the womb. Prostaglandin production is also known to be increased in women who suffer from heavy periods. By opposing the production and action of prostaglandins, mefenamic acid relieves period pains and also reduces blood loss in women who have heavy periods.

Uses of Ponstan:

How to use Mefenamic Acid?

Ponstan tab should be taken by mouth, usually 4 times a day with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters) or as directed by your doctor. Do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking this drug.

If stomach upset occurs, take this medication with food or milk. Do not take Ponstan tab (mefenamic acid) with antacids unless directed by your doctor. Certain antacids may change the amount of mefenamic acid absorbed by the body.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. To reduce your risk of stomach bleeding and other side effects, take this medication at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time.

Do not increase your dosage of Ponstan tab, take it more frequently, or take it for a longer time than prescribed. This medication usually should not be taken for more than 7 days at a time.

If you are taking this drug on an “as needed” basis (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the symptoms have worsened, the medicine may not work as well.

If you are using this medication for painful periods, take your first dose as soon as your period starts or pain begins. Usually, you will only need to take it for the first 2 to 3 days of your period.
