Naprosyn (Naproxen) is used for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis and for the relief of minor aches and pains in muscles, bones and joints, mild to moderate pain accompanied by inflammation in sprains and strains and primary dysmenorrhea. Naprosyn (naproxen), as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), can reduce the chemicals produced by your body which cause pain and swelling. Naprosyn does not cure your illness or prevent it from getting worse. Naprosyn can only relieve pain and reduce swelling as long as you continue to take it. Naprosyn is intended for use in patients greater than 18 years of age for the shortest possible duration. Naprosyn tablets should be swallowed with food or milk. Naprosyn (sustained release) and Naprosyn (enteric coated) tablets should be swallowed whole; do not split, chew, or crush them. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often and do not take it for a longer period of time than your health care provider recommended. If possible, you should take the lowest dose of this medication for the shortest time period. Taking too much Naprosyn may increase your chances of unwanted and sometimes dangerous side effects, especially if you are elderly, have other diseases or take other medications.
