Mefenamic Acid Medicinal Properties After Being Bitten By A Dog?
Hello doctor. I want to ask. My grandfather has just been bitten by a dog on his leg. Then taken to the nearest hospital. There my grandfather was injected with tetanus. Then given the drug, the drug is amoxillin and mefinal. What I am asking is whether this mefinal medicine was taken to relieve pain in the knee or the pain from the bite mark?
Hi Chesanica .. Thanks for the question.
Mefinal is a trademark containing 500 mg of mefenamic acid. Mefenamic acid is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. This drug functions as an anti-pain medication, from mild to severe pain. Can be used in patients with arthritis, pain in wounds, muscle pain, and in inflammation. For consumption of this drug can be consumed 3 times a day or according to the doctor's advice. It is better to be careful taking this drug if you have stomach problems, kidney problems, heart problems, high blood pressure. If there is an allergic reaction such as itching, shortness of breath, it is better to stop taking this drug.
The medicine that was given to your grandmother can be used to relieve pain in the knee and pain in the bite mark. If there are still further complaints, you can go back to check with your grandmother to the doctor.
