Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic......
Meftal spas is mefenemic acid which belongs to a group of NSAID Non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs.They are good when taken for acute problems and for a short course . Long time ingestion has many problems - It causes - Gastritis , Renal problems - if taken for long can cause Renovascular hypertension, renal failure, It also has antiplatelet effect and so increases chances of blood loss leading to low heamoglobin-Anaemia.My advice get your headache evaluated - know the cause and get an appropriate medication.Try avoiding it to extent possible for it has many sideeffects on long term use.

Child age = 5.5 yrs. Suffering with fever since 5 days Fever peak was 103+ once while normally it reaches to 101-102. Crocin didn t work so we have been giving Crocin + Meftal (5ml each) and tht takes care for 6 hrs. we repeat medication in 8 hrs (approx). The fever doesn t seem to come down in terms of frequency :(. Saw a ped also, he says we will wait since blood report and urine report show no infection. I will be doing Dengue test tomorrow. Question: How safe is Meftal-P for kids every 8 hrs? and is it safe to give Meftal + crocin together? What else I can do for my kid?

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.
