Naprosyn 250 Mg Tablets

If you have pain, inflammation, stiffness, or fever, your healthcare provider may prescribe Naprosyn® (naproxen) 250 mg tablets. Your exact dose, however, will depend on several factors, such as the condition being treated, other medications you are taking, and other medical conditions you may have.
For example, when treating acute pain or menstrual periods, the typical adult dosage of Naprosyn is 500 mg to start, followed by 250 mg every six to eight hours as needed. The maximum daily dosage is Naprosyn 1250 mg per day.
If you are taking this drug to help relieve arthritis symptoms, it may take one to two weeks for the medicine to work to its full potential. However, Naprosyn helps to relieve pain in about one hour.
