What Is Naproxen Used For?

We are often asked “What is Naproxen used for?”

Naproxen belongs to a group of medicines called NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

To help with inflammation and healing, the body release chemicals known as Prostaglandins. When these chemicals are released, as well as the benefits, they also cause some negative side effects such as pain and fever.

These Prostaglandins are produced by an enzyme called cyclooxygenase (COX). Naproxen and other NSAIDs work to reduce the amount of COX-1 and COX-2 that are produced and as a consequence any ongoing inflammation, pain or fever is reduced.

Whilst the COX-2 enzyme is the one that creates prostaglandins that cause pain and fever, the COX-1 enzyme helps protect the stomach lining from any damaging effects of acid. This is why when sometimes taking NSAIDs or Naproxen, your stomach can produce ulcers and promote bleeding.

Naproxen 250mg and Naproxen 500mg is typically used pain relief. It helps reduce inflammation and pain in a person’s joints and muscles.

This should answer the question of what is Naproxen used for.
