Benefits of Naprosyn
If you have pain, stiffness, fever, or inflammation, you may benefit from Naprosyn® (naproxen). In particular, Naprosyn has been shown to be beneficial for the following:
- Pain relief -- for pain following a medical procedure, from straining a muscle, or various other bone, tendon, or muscle pain
- Treatment of arthritis symptoms -- for pain, stiffness, and swelling caused by several different types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and gout
- Treatment of painful menstrual periods.
As a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Naprosyn works by blocking the action of certain hormones in the body (called prostaglandins) that cause pain and inflammation.
