Drug Interactions With Mefenamic Acid

Lithium (Eskalith, Lithane, Lithonate, Lithotabs)
Taking mefenamic acid and lithium together may increase the levels of lithium in your body by decreasing the removal of lithium by the kidneys. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your doses of these drugs and monitor the level of lithium in your blood.
 
Methotrexate
If you are taking both methotrexate and mefenamic acid, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and adjust your doses of these drugs.
 
"Blood Thinners" and Other Similar Drugs
Combining mefanamic acid with anticoagulants ("blood thinners"), antiplatelet drugs, or other medications that increase the risk of bleeding may lead to serious bleeding problems, including dangerous internal bleeding. Do not combine mefanamic acid with such medications without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
 
Herbal and/or Nutritional Supplements
Several herbal and nutritional supplements can also interact with mefenamic acid and may increase the risk of bleeding. If you are taking any natural or herbal supplements, make sure to discuss it with your healthcare provider before starting mefenamic acid therapy.
