Naproxen Profile:

Naproxen (Naprosyn) is used for treating rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and juvenile arthritis. It is used to treat tendonitis, bursitis, gout, menstrual cramps, or mild to moderate pain. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. Naproxen is an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Exactly how it works is not known. It may block certain substances in the body that are linked to inflammation. NSAIDs treat the symptoms of pain and inflammation. They do not treat the disease that causes those symptoms.

Naproxen Dosing:

The dose of Naproxen will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor's orders or the directions on the label. The following information includes only the average doses of Naproxen. If your dose of Naproxen is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.

The number of tablets that you take depends on the strength of the medicine. Also, the number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the length of time you take the Naproxen depend on the medical problem for which you are taking the medicine.

People with arthritis usually need to take more of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug during a flare-up than they do between flare-ups of arthritis symptoms. Therefore, your dose may need to be increased or decreased as your condition changes.

For rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and spondylitis (lower back pain):

  • Adults — At first, 250, 375, or 500 milligrams (mg) two times a day, in the morning and evening. Your doctor may increase the dose, if necessary, up to a total of 1500 mg a day. After your condition improves your doctor may direct you to take a lower dose.
  • Children — The dose is based on body weight. At first, 5 mg per kilogram (kg) (about 2.25 mg per pound) of body weight twice a day. After your condition improves your doctor may direct you to take a lower dose.

For bursitis, tendinitis, menstrual cramps, and other kinds of pain:

  • Adults — 500 mg for the first dose, then 250 mg every six to eight hours as needed.
  • Children — Use and dose must be determined by your doctor.

For gout:

  • Adults — 750 mg for the first dose, then 250 mg every eight hours until the attack is relieved.
  • Children — Use and dose must be determined by your doctor.

Missed dose - If you miss a dose of Naproxen:

If your health care professional has ordered you to take this medicine according to a regular schedule, and you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. (For long-acting medicines or extended-release dosage forms that are only taken once or twice a day, take the missed dose only if you remember within an hour or two after the dose should have been taken. If you do not remember until later, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule.) Do not double doses.

Storage — To store Naproxen:

  • Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Store away from heat and direct light.
  • Do not store tablets or capsules in the bathroom, near the kitchen sink, or in other damp places. Heat or moisture may cause the medicine to break down.
  • Keep liquid and suppository forms of this medicine from freezing.
  • Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed. Be sure that any discarded medicine is out of the reach of children.
