Table of contents:

Naprosyn also known as its generic name Naproxen is a prescription drug used to relieve pain, swelling, and stiffness caused by a variety of medical conditions. It belongs to a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation.

Naproxen can be used to treat conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tendinitis, bursitis, and acute gout.

Uses and Dosage

Take Naproxen tablets by mouth as prescribed by your doctor, usually 2-3 times per day, with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters). Swallow naproxen whole and do not break, crush, or chew the tablets. To avoid stomach upset, take the medication with food, milk, or an antacid. After taking Naproxen, do not lie down for at least 10 minutes.

The usage of Naprosyn may result in stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be deadly, especially in older adults. To avoid this, take Naprosyn at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration, as prescribed by your doctor. Do not to increase the dosage or take Naprosyn more frequently than directed by your doctor or the package label.

The recommended dosage of Naproxen depends on the medical condition being treated.

  • Pain, menstrual cramps, tendonitis, and bursitis: The typical dose is to take 250 mg to 500 mg by mouth twice daily. The maximum daily dose is 1,500 mg for up to 6 months.
  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis: The typical dose is to take 500 mg by mouth once, followed by 250 mg every 6 to 8 hours as needed. The maximum daily dose is 1,250 mg.
  • Gout: The typical dose is to take 750 mg by mouth at the start of a gout attack, then 250 mg every 8 hours until your symptoms go away.
  • Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (naproxen liquid suspension is preferred): Your child's provider will calculate your child's dose based on their body weight. The typical dose is to take 5 mg/kg by mouth twice daily. Naproxen tablet can only be taken by children who are over 110 lbs.
