Naproxen is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug, or NSAID, that is usd to control pain, stiffness and tenderness in patients with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. This medication helps relieve arthritis pain by stopping the body from producing a substance that causes inflammation, pain and fever.

Side Effects/Warnings

Taking Naproxen makes it more likely that a patient will have a heart attack or stroke. Patients who have had coronary bypass surgery recently or who are candidates for this type of surgery can’t safely take this medication. In addition, patients with a family history of heart disease or who have heart problems are at greater risk of heart attack or stroke if they take this medication.

Patients should also report stomach problems to their doctors while on this medication, especially if they also have blood in their stools. Naproxen can cause ulcers and perforations of the stomach lining.
