Buy Ponstan capsules online

Ponstan is a type of pain relief medication designed to help manage mild to moderate arthritic pain and inflammation. The active ingredient in Ponstan works to block the feeling of pain, but doesn’t work on the cause of the pain. In this case, it means that you won’t feel so much pain from arthritis, but it won’t do anything to cure the condition itself.

You need a prescription from a GMC/EU certified doctor in order to buy this medication online. To buy Ponstan from Doctor-4-U, simply complete our online consultation and if you are deemed suitable, we will dispatch your medication usually within 24 hours. If you are not deemed suitable for Ponstan, you will receive a full refund.

Do you need a prescription for Ponstan?

Yes, you need a prescription from a GMC/EU certified doctor in order to buy Ponstan online. With Doctor-4-U’s easy consultation process, you can get a prescription for Ponstan safely and quickly. Select the item you want to buy, click “Start Consultation” and fill out the short medical questionnaire provided. If you are deemed suitable for your prescription, it will usually be dispatched within 24 hours. If not, you will receive a full refund.

How does Ponstan work?

Ponstan contains the active ingredient mefenamic acid, a type of NSAID (non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug). Mefenamic acid relieves pain by blocking the chemical cyclooxygenase (COX), so the brain doesn’t feel pain. Ponstan is able to relieve pain and reduce inflammation, but won’t ease the cause of the discomfort.

Is Ponstan suitable for me?

Although Ponstan is designed for those suffering from arthritic pain, your medical history and other medications may mean it isn’t right for you.

Speak to your doctor before using Ponstan if:

  • You are allergic to mefenamic acid or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
  • You have had a heart attack or stroke
  • You have high blood pressure
  • You have blood problems such as clots or anaemia
  • You have bowel or intestinal problems
  • You have asthma

Like all medications, Ponstan may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. Common side effects include:

  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Indigestion and constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Asthma, or asthma that is worse than usual if you already suffer from it
  • Blurred vision
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

The recommended dose of Ponstan is two capsules (500mg) taken three times a day with meals. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water. Only use this information as a guide, and do not exceed the recommended dosage.
