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