Meftal P 100 MG/5ML Description

Meftal-P suspension is an analgesic medication. It is used to reduce fever and pain associated with sprains and injuries in children. It also helps to reduce swelling, redness, and pain in the joints

due to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The body produces large amounts of a chemical called prostaglandin in response to an injury or infection. These chemicals are responsible for causing fever, redness, swelling, and pain. Meftal-P suspension contains mefenamic acid as the active ingredient. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medicine that decreases the production of these fever and pain-causing chemicals. Give this medicine to your child exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Shake well before use. Do not give more than the recommended dose. Use a measuring cup or spoon for the exact quantity. Do not consume directly from the bottle. Do not give this medicine to your child if he/she is allergic to any of its components. Before taking Meftal-P suspension, inform your doctor about your child’s complete medical history. Also, inform the doctor about all other medicines and supplements your child is taking.
