Naproxen - Oral



Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used to treat headaches, muscle aches, backaches, tendonitis, bursitis, dental pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis, or gout. Naproxen is also used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. Naproxen works by blocking the enzyme in your body that makes prostaglandins. Decreasing prostaglandins helps to reduce pain, swelling, and fever. Do not give nonprescription products containing Naproxen to a child younger than 12 years of age unless directed to do so by the doctor.

Side Effects
When I first started using Naproxen, three years ago, the only real side effects noticed were sleepiness. It didn't always ease the pain of my migraine, though. Three years later, I still take it with food and lots of water, but I experience quite a bit of stomache pain when I take it or any other NSAID. Also, I have seen my tolerance for it climb over time. So, it is usually the last medication I go to for pain relief.
