Naprosyn Pain Reliever

Naprosyn® (naproxen) is a drug approved to reduce pain, inflammation, fever, and stiffness caused by many conditions. Specifically, it can help with injuries, arthritis, gout, and menstrual cramps, as well as other types of bone, muscle, or tendon pain. It is also combined with other medications in several cold, allergy, and flu products.
 
This medication is available by prescription only, and comes in the form of a tablet or liquid. It is usually taken by mouth no more than twice daily or every 12 hours as needed.
 
As a pain reliever, Naprosyn belongs to a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and works by inhibiting the action of certain hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
 
Possible side effects of Naprosyn include headaches, dizziness, and drowsiness. Because this medication is not suitable for everyone, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other drugs you are taking, as well as any other medical conditions you have before beginning treatment.
