Naprosyn

Naprosyn tablets are a pain relief treatment commonly used against inflammation and pain in the joints and muscles. A branded version of Naproxen tablets, Naprosyn may be prescribed to treat things like gout, high temperature or period pain. This medicine can be taken by adults and children in most circumstances. Like certain other pain relief medications, Naprosyn is classed as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and it is taken to prevent the body from releasing certain substances which usually end up causing pain and inflammation. Other types of NSAIDs which can be bought include ibuprofen, diclofenac and mefenamic acid.

What is a Naprosyn tablet?

Naprosyn tablets are a type of pain relief medication. They are a branded version of naproxen. Patients may take Naprosyn to reduce inflammation and pain in joints and muscles. It can be used to treat diseases of joints, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and gout.

Naprosyn is also used to treat symptoms of muscle and bone disorders (such as back pain) as well as period pain. Patients who struggle with any of these various types of pain may be prescribed Naprosyn (or the generic equivalent naproxen) by a doctor as a way of dealing with them.

How does Naprosyn work?

Naprosyn contains naproxen which belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This medicine can treat pain symptoms by inhibiting the production of COX enzymes. It also temporarily prevents the body from releasing prostaglandins. These natural substances typically cause symptoms such as inflammation, pain and fever occurring, but by disrupting these substances, Naprosyn provides relief from such symptoms.

Am I ok to take Naprosyn?

You may be prescribed Naprosyn tablets by a doctor, depending on the specific type of pain you’re experiencing and whether your health allows you to use this medication safely. You should not take Naprosyn tablets if any of the following apply to you:

  • You’re pregnant or currently breast-feeding
  • You have severe liver, kidney or heart failure
  • You have or have previously had stomach or duodenal ulcers or bleeding in the stomach or intestines
  • You have had two or more episodes of peptic ulcers, stomach bleeding or perforation
  • You or the patient requiring treatment is under 5 years old

If you have any other health conditions, then check with your doctor or local pharmacist if any precautions are necessary when taking Naprosyn as a result. You should also inform one of them about any other medicines you are currently taking before you start on Naprosyn. Certain medicines could interact with the effects of Naprosyn, particularly if you are taking any of the following:

  • Aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid (to prevent blood clots)
  • Other NSAIDs such as COX II inhibitors
  • Any medicines used to thin the blood or prevent blood clotting (such as heparin or warfarin)
  • Corticosteroids (such as prednisolone)
  • Diuretics, also known as water tablets (such as furosemide)
  • Any medicines used to treat high blood pressure (such as captopril, losartan or propranolol)
  • Ciclosporin or tacrolimus
  • Mifepristone (NSAIDs should not be taken 8 to 12 days after mifepristone)
  • SSRI antidepressants
  • Zidovudine
  • Quinolones (such as ciprofloxacin)
  • Probenecid
  • Methotrexate
  • Bisphosphonates
  • Colestyramine (if you’re taking this, then Naprosyn should be taken 1 hour before or 4-6 hours after colestyramine to avoid interference between the two medicines)
  • Lithium
  • Hydantoins (such as phenytoin)
  • Sulfonamides (such as sulfamethoxazole)
  • Sulfonylureas (such as glibenclamide or gliclazide)
  • Cardiac glycosides (such as digoxin)

How to take Naprosyn

The strength of tablets you’ll be given and specific dosage instructions will depend on your age and what condition you are treating. Your doctor will always aim to give you the lowest effective dose. Tablets should be swallowed with or after food.

When treating rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or ankylosing spondylitis, the usual dosage is 500mg-1g a day in two doses at twelve hour intervals. If 1g a day is needed, then this can be taken as a single dose or split into two 500g doses.

If treating an attack of gout, you typically take 750mg as a single dose initially, followed by 250mg every 8 hours until the attack has passed.

When treating muscle or bone disorders or painful periods, you usually start with 500mg as a single dose, followed by 250mg every 6-8 hours as necessary. Following the first day of using this treatment, you may take up to a maximum of 1,250mg daily.

The following instructions detailed above are what is typically given to adults, but your dose may end up needing adjustment so always follow your doctor’s advice. Your dosage may be reduced if you are elderly. When prescribed to children or adolescents, the dosage instructions are usually based on the weight of the patient (10mg per kg of body weight).

Naprosyn side effects

Like with other medicines, it is possible you could experience side effects as a result of taking Naprosyn, but not all patients experience them. The most commonly reported side effects linked with this medicine include the following:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion and changes in vision
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Tiredness
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Rashes

These side effects are usually short-lived and are more likely to occur in the early days of taking the tablets. If any side effects persist for a long time, however, then report this to a doctor as soon as possible.

Other side effects besides those listed above can occur but they are unlikely to affect you. If you do experience a severe side effect, such as an allergic reaction, blood in your faeces, stomach pain or vomiting blood, then stop taking Naprosyn and seek medical attention right away.
