Naprosyn successfully treats the symptoms of costochondritis, headache, tendonitis, period pain, juvenile and adult rheumatoid arthritis. It may be prescribed for other conditions not listed here. Naprosyn is part of a group of medications called NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), which block the production of certain hormones responsible for pain and inflammation in the body. Before you buy Naprosyn online, note that it does not treat the cause of more serious illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis; it will only alleviate the pain and inflammation caused by it.
Naprosyn works by inhibiting the activity of a substance in the body named cyclo-oxygenase, which is involved in the production of the hormone prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are created by the organism after certain diseases and conditions as well as physical injuries, and are responsible for inducing pain, swelling and inflammation. Naprosyn effectively prevents the excess generation of these hormones and therefore reduces the pain and inflammation.
The recommended dose for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis symptoms is 250 to 500 mg twice per day, for other conditions such as headaches or muscle pain, a onetime 500mg dose (two 250mg pills) is commonly prescribed. The amount taken per 24 hours should not exceed 1250 mg. Naprosyn tablets should be swallowed whole. Do not chew, break or otherwise divide the pill into smaller parts.
Even though Naprosyn is issued as an OTC (Over the Counter) drug, it may cause harm to the recipient if used inappropriately. You should avoid using Naprosyn if you are taking any other medications, similar to it, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or ketoprofen. Also, if you have a history of heart attack, stroke, blood clotting, heart failure, or liver disease, it is strongly advised that you consult a physician before you choose to buy Naprosyn online and begin treatment.
Naprosyn may infrequently cause several side effects. They are mostly minor and quick passing; serious Naprosyn side effects tend to be very rare.
