Ponstan SF is a product manufactured in the Philippines, that is classified under Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs).

There is also a US version of this drug by the name of Ponstel, that seems to be similar in all aspects. To view more information regarding Ponstel and its side effects please follow the link below...

The active ingredients in Ponstan SF/Ponstel are Meclofenamate, Mefenamic Acid, which you can take a look at by clicking on the link below...

As far as the side effects for this drug, they can range from very minor issues to being quite serious.

The active ingredient Mefenamic acid is known to cause an upset stomach, therefore it is recommended to take prescribed doses together with food or milk. Instances of drowsiness may also occur. As such, it is recommended to avoid driving or consuming alcohol while taking this medication.

Other known mild side effects of mefenamic acid include headaches, nervousness and vomiting. Serious side effects may include diarrhoea, bloody vomit, blurred vision, skin rash, itching and swelling, sore throat and fever. It is advised to consult a doctor immediately if these symptoms appear while taking this medication.

Also note that Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may worsen hypertension. Persons with hypertension, left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure may wish to avoid NSAIDs.

If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to assist you.
