Is Relafen a Narcotic?

Although Relafen® (nabumetone) is a medication used to treat pain, this drug is not a type of narcotic. Relafen belongs to a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and works by blocking the action of certain hormones (prostaglandins) that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
Specifically, Relafen is useful for treating pain, swelling, inflammation, and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
It is important to note that Relafen is not a cure for these types of arthritis, nor does it slow down the progression of the disease.
