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?

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
