Description

What is Naproxen?

Naproxen belongs to a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is a prescription only medication that can also be supplied by our very own trained pharmacist under a patient group direction. It can be used to treat pain where there is also inflammation present. Other well-known NSAIDs include aspirin and ibuprofen, however naproxen is a stronger anti-inflammatory than both aspirin and ibuprofen.

What is naproxen used for?

Since naproxen is an NSAID, it can be used to help reduce pain and inflammation in the body. It does this by reducing the hormones that cause swelling and redness in the body. It is frequently used by adult patients presenting with acute, mild to moderate lower back pain, or other musculoskeletal disorder, for whom paracetamol has not provided sufficient pain relief. It can also be used by female adult patients over 16 years of age presenting with painful periods.

What’s the difference between naproxen and other pain treatments?

Naproxen are stronger than other over the counter treatments such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin. Diclofenac has very similar effects to naproxen, however it carries a greater risk of unwanted effects. Naproxen and other NSAIDs are better at treating inflammation, redness and swelling compared to paracetamol. It is also stronger than paracetamol, however can be taken together if you require extra pain relief.

It is important to know that certain cold and flu remedies and over the counter painkillers may contain ibuprofen or aspirin. For this reason you should avoid these medications while taking naproxen to prevent any interaction. Please check the ingredients before buying or ask the pharmacist for advice.
