Ponstan®

Was ist Ponstan und wann wird es angewendet?

Ponstan enthält als Wirkstoff Mefenaminsäure, eine Substanz, die neben der schmerzstillenden auch

eine ausgeprägte entzündungshemmende und fiebersenkende Wirkung besitzt. Ponstan dient zur

Behandlung von:

-plötzlich auftretenden oder langanhaltenden Schmerzen bei rheumatischen Erkrankungen,

Muskelschmerzen, Schmerzen im Bereich der Wirbelsäule, (z. B. Bandscheiben-, Schulter- oder

Nackenbeschwerden),

-Schmerzen nach Operationen, Verletzungen oder zahnärztlichen Eingriffen,

-Kopf-, Zahn- und Ohrenschmerzen,

-schmerzhaften und/oder zu starken Monatsblutungen.

Ponstan ist ebenfalls geeignet zur Fiebersenkung und Schmerzlinderung bei Grippeerkrankungen

sowie bei anderen fieberhaften Krankheiten insbesondere im Bereich der oberen Atemwege.

Auf Verschreibung des Arztes oder der Ärztin.

Wann darf Ponstan nicht angewendet werden?

Ponstan darf nicht angewendet werden,

-wenn Sie auf einen der Inhaltsstoffe allergisch reagieren oder nach der Einnahme von

Acetylsalicylsäure oder anderen Schmerz- oder Rheumamitteln, sogenannten nicht-steroidalen

entzündungshemmenden Arzneimitteln (NSAR), Atemnot oder allergieähnliche Hautreaktionen

hatten,

-im letzten Drittel der Schwangerschaft,

-in der Stillzeit,

-bei aktiven Magen- und/oder Zwölffingerdarmgeschwüren oder Magen-/Darm-Blutungen,

-bei chronischen Darmentzündungen (Morbus Crohn, Colitis ulzerosa),

-bei schwerer Einschränkung der Leber- oder Nierenfunktion,

-bei schwerer Herzleistungsschwäche,

-zur Behandlung von Schmerzen nach einer koronaren Bypassoperation am Herzen (resp. Einsatz

einer Herz-Lungen-Maschine).

Wann ist bei der Einnahme von Ponstan Vorsicht geboten?

Während der Behandlung mit Ponstan können im oberen Magen-Darm-Trakt

Schleimhautgeschwüre, selten Blutungen oder in Einzelfällen Perforationen (Magen-,

Darmdurchbrüche) auftreten. Diese Komplikationen können während der Behandlung jederzeit auch

ohne Warnsymptome auftreten. Um dieses Risiko zu verringern, verschreibt Ihr Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin

Ihnen die kleinste wirksame Dosis während der kürzest möglichen Therapiedauer.

Auch der gleichzeitige Genuss von alkoholischen Getränken kann das Risiko für Nebenwirkungen

im oberen Magen-Darm-Trakt erhöhen.

Wenden Sie sich an Ihren Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin, wenn anhaltende Durchfälle auftreten, Sie

Magenschmerzen haben oder einen Zusammenhang mit der Einnahme des Arzneimittels vermuten.

Für gewisse Schmerzmittel, die sogenannten COX-2-Hemmer wurde unter hohen Dosierungen

und/oder Langzeitbehandlung ein erhöhtes Risiko für Herzinfarkt und Schlaganfall festgestellt. Ob

dieses erhöhte Risiko auch für Ponstan zutrifft ist noch nicht bekannt. Falls Sie bereits einen

Herzinfarkt, Schlaganfall oder eine Venenthrombose hatten, oder falls Sie Risikofaktoren haben (wie

hoher Blutdruck, Diabetes (Zuckerkrankheit), hohe Blutfettwerte, Rauchen), wird Ihr Arzt oder Ihre

Ärztin entscheiden, ob Sie Ponstan trotzdem anwenden können. Informieren Sie in jedem Fall Ihren

Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin darüber.

Die Anwendung von Ponstan kann die Funktion Ihrer Nieren beeinträchtigen, was zu einer Erhöhung

des Blutdrucks und/oder zu Flüssigkeitsansammlungen (Ödemen) führen kann. Informieren Sie Ihren

Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin, wenn Sie herzkrank oder nierenkrank sind, falls Sie Arzneimittel gegen

Bluthochdruck (z.B. harntreibende Mittel, ACE-Hemmer) einnehmen oder bei einem erhöhten

Flüssigkeitsverlust, z.B. durch starkes Schwitzen.

Wegen möglicher Nebenwirkungen wie Benommenheit, Müdigkeit, Schwindel oder Sehstörungen

kann dieses Arzneimittel die Reaktionsfähigkeit, die Fähigkeit Werkzeuge oder Maschinen zu

bedienen und die Fahrtüchtigkeit beeinträchtigen.

Andere NSAR, wie sie gegen Schmerzen oder Rheuma eingesetzt werden, sollten nicht gleichzeitig

mit Ponstan angewendet werden, da sie das Risiko für das Auftreten von Nebenwirkungen erhöhen.

Dies gilt auch für die gleichzeitige Einnahme von cortisonhaltigen Medikamenten zur

Entzündungshemmung, von gerinnungshemmenden Arzneimitteln (Blutverdünner, sog.

Antikoagulantien) oder von Serotonin-Wiederaufnahme-Hemmern, z.B. gegen Depressionen. Sie

sollten daher Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin über die gleichzeitige Anwendung solcher Arzneimittel in

Kenntnis setzen. Ebenso, wenn Sie an Asthma, Magen/Darm-, Leber-, Herz/Kreislauf- oder

Nierenerkrankungen, an einer Störung der Blutgerinnung oder erhöhtem Blutzuckerspiegel leiden

oder gelitten haben und entsprechende Arzneimittel einnehmen.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie an anderen

Krankheiten leiden, Allergien haben oder andere Arzneimittel (auch selbstgekaufte!) einnehmen oder

äusserlich anwenden.

Darf Ponstan während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit angewendet werden?

Sollten Sie schwanger sein oder eine Schwangerschaft planen, sollten Sie Mefenaminsäure nur nach

Rücksprache mit Ihrem Arzt/Ihrer Ärztin anwenden. Im letzten Drittel der Schwangerschaft darf

Ponstan nicht angewendet werden.

Ponstan soll während der Stillzeit nicht angewendet werden.

Informieren Sie in jedem Fall Ihren Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin, falls Sie schwanger sind oder wenn Sie

stillen.

Wie verwenden Sie Ponstan?

Halten Sie sich generell an die von Ihrem Arzt bzw. Ihrer Ärztin verordnete Dosierung. Die übliche

Dosierung beträgt:

-Für Erwachsene und Jugendliche über 14 Jahre: Täglich 3 mal 1 Filmtablette bzw. 3 mal 2 Kapseln

Ponstan während der Mahlzeiten. Je nach Bedarf kann diese Dosis vermindert oder erhöht werden,

jedoch sollten Sie am selben Tag nicht mehr als 4 Filmtabletten oder 8 Kapseln einnehmen. Die

übliche Dosierung für Zäpfchen beträgt 3 mal täglich 1 Zäpfchen Ponstan zu 500 mg. Ponstan

Zäpfchen sollten Sie nicht mehr als 7 Tage hintereinander anwenden, da es bei längerer Anwendung

zu lokalen Reizerscheinungen kommen kann.

-Für Kinder im Alter von 6 Monaten bis 14 Jahren wird Ihr Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin die Dosis dem

Alter entsprechend anpassen. Bei Einnahme von Kapseln gibt man im Allgemeinen als Einzeldosis

6.5 mg pro kg Körpergewicht. Bei Verwendung von Zäpfchen werden 12 mg pro kg Körpergewicht

verabreicht.

Safety of the food enzyme glucoamylase from a genetically modified Aspergillus niger (strain NZYM‐BF)

Published on: Wed, 31 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The food enzyme glucoamylase (glucan 1,4‐α‐glucosidase; EC 3.2.1.3) is produced with the genetically modified strain of Aspergillus niger by Novozymes A/S. The genetic modifications do not give rise to safety concerns. The food enzyme is free from viable cells of the production organism and recombinant DNA. This glucoamylase is intended to be used in brewing processes and in starch processing for glucose syrups production. Residual amounts of total organic s...
