How Does Naprosyn Work?

Naprosyn and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) work by inhibiting the action of certain hormones (called prostaglandins) that cause inflammation and pain in the body.

This includes pain and joint swelling associated with different forms of arthritis and other conditions, and pain related to inflammation or bone, muscle, or tendon injury.
