Can you combine mefenamic acid drugs with ibuprofen

1 Answer:

Hello Ahmad Aji,


Thank you for the question.

Mefenamic acid and ibuprofen are both included in the class of NSAID drugs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Both of these drugs are useful in minimizing inflammation, pain, and also fever because they are able to inhibit the work of enzymes that play a role in producing prostaglandins. Prostaglandins themselves are chemical compounds that the body releases into the blood and cause inflammation, pain, and fever.


If there are indeed medical indications that require it, it is not an absolute prohibition to combine the two drugs. However, you need to know, that by taking both of these drugs together, even though the way they work is the same, the risk of side effects lurking will be greater. The side effects include allergies, nausea, vomiting, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, gastrointestinal bleeding, or other bleeding disorders. Therefore, considering that these two drugs are not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, it is strongly not recommended to take them, either individually or in combination, without a prescription and direct supervision from a doctor.


I hope this helps.
