Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

Does previously having had aspirin affect the risk of reye syndrome?

See below

Reye_syndrome
The exact cause of Reye's Syndrome isn't known but an important risk factor is taking aspirin during certain viral illnesses, particularly chickenpox and flu in children and teenagers, especially if they have a genetic predisposition (abnormal fatty acid metabolism). Aspirin is largely metabolized a day or so after the last dose (the effect on clotting lasts a week).

Can mefenamic acid cause reye syndrome?

Probably not

Reye_syndrome
Reye's syndrome is rare now because it was found to be due to aspirin given to "bring down the fever" There are still occasional appearances of the disease unassociated with aspirin but i have never seen a reference to the substance in your question.
