welcome to HealthcareMagic
The syrup prescribed by your doctor is Ponstan/Meftal-P which contains Mefenamic acid as the main drug .It should be available easily in a medical store as it is not a rare medicine .Just in case you are not getting it please don't worry go to the doctor & tell him ;he will write a replacement medicine or change the medicine.
Take care.
