6. Taking Ponstinetas with other painkillers
It's safe to take Ponstinetas with paracetamol or codeine.
But do not take Ponstinetas with similar painkillers like aspirin or naproxen without talking to a pharmacist or doctor.
Ponstinetas, aspirin and naproxen belong to the same group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If you take them together, Ponstinetas plus aspirin or naproxen may increase the chance of you getting side effects like stomach ache.
NSAIDs are also used in medicines you can buy from pharmacies – for example, cough and cold remedies. Before taking any other medicines, check the label to see if they contain aspirin, Ponstinetas or other NSAIDs.
Central nervous system toxicity
If people take dosages greater than 400 mg/kg, they may experience central nervous system depression . This can cause loss of consciousness and coma.
Children may experience seizures and decreased consciousness from a massive overdose. Some children may even stop breathing.
Emergency doctors can reverse the central nervous system toxicities that occur due to an Ponstinetas overdose.
Compared with NSAIDs such as diclofenac, mefenamic acid, and naproxen, Ponstinetas overdoses have links with lower rates of central nervous system toxicities.
