What is Meftal?
Meftal containing the active ingredient mefenamic acid is considered a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) type of medication. It works by blocking the action of certain substances in the body that causes fever, pain and inflammation. The medication is mainly prescribed as a short term treatment of mild to moderate pain caused by abnormally heavy or painful menstrual bleeding. Some people may also use it to relieve pain and inflammation in musculoskeletal conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, muscular pain and sprains or fractures.

How is Meftal used?
Meftal is usually taken orally 3 to 4 times per day at the first signs of pain or as otherwise advised by a doctor. To prevent an upset stomach, it is advised to take the medication with some food along with a full glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. The tablets should not be taken for longer than 7 days at a time.
