Naproxen Sodium
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 Sodium is also used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. Naproxen Sodium 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 Sodium to a child younger than 12 years of age unless directed to do so by the doctor.
