In brief: Yes

Ponstal is a type of NSAID like motrin.
Unless you are allergic to the medication it won't cause your asthma to flare.

Some patients have NSAID or aspirin sensitive asthma; this is usually (but not always) associated with nasal polyps, and a flare of the disease after taking either aspirin or a NSAID.

In brief: Most Likely

Mefenamic acid is used to relieve mild to moderate pain, including menstrual pain.
Mefenamic acid is in a class of medications called nsaids. It works by stopping the body's production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. If you have no problems with nsaids and flaring of your asthma, then you are safe to try it. Have u ever taken aleve, (naproxen) motrin, aspirin, ibuprofen?
