Mefenamic Acid Consumption Dose For Adults?
My grandmother has an indication of a pinched nerve, and her legs are very painful, and drink mefenamic acid 2 tabs at once 3 times a day, is that allowed? Is it still the safe dose limit or has it exceeded the proper dosage? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, whether your condition has previously been checked by a doctor and diagnosed with nerve disease? What tests have you been through related to the disease? What is the definitive treatment your doctor recommends?
Pinching nerves can occur in various locations. If your complaint is centered in the leg area, then the pinched nerve that the doctor is referring to may refer to a nerve pinch in the spine, groin, or maybe another leg area. The diagnosis of these pinched nerves is not enough to be made based only on interviews and regular physical examinations, but must also involve several radiological examinations, including x-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so on. Many factors can cause nerve pain, including injuries, degenerative diseases, repetitive activities carried out in an un ergonomic position, tumors or infections that force nerves, and so on. In addition to pain, nerve clamps often also cause other complaints, such as tingling, numbness, weakness, until paralysis. The definitive handling of nerve nerves can be done in various ways, including by giving drugs, physiotherapy, to surgery.
Mefenamic acid is a type of NSAID class of drugs that can indeed be used to treat pain. This drug is not actually included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, so it is not appropriate if you take it independently without a prescription directly from your doctor. The dosage of this drug can vary depending on the indication of administration, age, body posture of the patient, general health condition of the patient, and many other factors. Considering this drug is not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, it is also not appropriate if we describe in detail the dosage and how to use this drug in an open forum like this. What is clear, excessive consumption of mefenamic acid can put you at risk of experiencing various side effects, such as abdominal pain, vomiting, vomiting of blood, black bowel movements, other bleeding disorders, shortness of breath, convulsions, weakness, weakness, weakness, weakness, and so on. Some sensitive people can also experience mild to severe allergic reactions when taking this drug.
Therefore, before deciding to take medicine (which is not an over-the-counter medicine), ideally you should first check yourself with a doctor or a neurologist. With his competence, he certainly understands the best management according to your condition.
