PARA SAAN ANG MEFENAMIC ACID? ANO GAMOT SA SAKIT NG NGIPIN AT MENSTRUAL CRAMPS (DYSMENORRHEA)


Pampahupa ang Mefenamic acid ng sakit sa katawan, tulad ng muscular aches and pains, menstrual cramps, headaches, and dental pain o sakit ng ngipin (toothache). Epektibo lamang ito habang naiinum, pero hindi nito ginagamot ang sanhi ng sakit.


Paano iniinum ang mefenamic acid?


Ang recommended dose para sa mga adults ay 500 mg sa unang inum, at 250 mg sa sunod na inum every six hours. Kadalasan hindi dapat lumalagpas ng 5 araw ang paginum nito. Sa mga menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea), kadalasan ay mga 2-3 days lang ang kailangan. Kumain din muna bago ito inumin.


Importante ang inumin ito base sa prescription ng doctor. Kapag nakalimutan mo inumin, inumin agad at sundan ang schedule. Huwag lang mag double dose.
