Ponstel (Mefenamic Acid) is a prescription medication for short-term relief of mild to moderate pain from various conditions such as headaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, and muscle aches in adults and children at least 14 years old. It is also used to decrease pain and blood loss from menstrual periods. The active ingredient in Ponstel is Mefenamic acid. Mefenamic acid belongs to the class of medication called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking the production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation, thereby reducing swelling, pain, or fever.

• Passage of dark colour stool;
• Severe abdominal pain;
• Steatorrhea;
• Symptoms suggestive of renal failure such as difficulty in passing urine, flank pain, or passage of blood in the urine;
• Vomit that looks like coffee ground;
• Weakness in one part or side of the body or slurred speech

Ponstel is a capsule and should be taken according to your prescription label. Taking a tablet three times daily with or without food is often recommended.
