Naproxen DR EC vs Naproxen

What is the difference between naproxen dr ec vs naproxen?

Naproxen comes in two forms, one a base version and another enteric coated version. The difference between the two is one is coated in a barrier called a polymer barrier. This allows a drug to pass through the stomach and be released, usually, in the upper tract of the intestine.

However, sometimes it’s not just allowing it to be released elsewhere. Enteric coating helps protect drugs from gastric acid which can cause instability at that pH. If the drug isn’t coated it can degrade.

If you are unsure about which Naproxen tablet you should be taking, speak to your doctor or pharmacist about Naproxen DR EC vs Naproxen.

Naproxen EC Breast Feeding

Naproxen EC breast feeding should be used with caution. The amount is too small to be harmful but the manufacturer has advised to avoid if possible.

Other anti-inflammatory medicines other than Naproxen EC breast feeding, such as ibuprofen, are safer.

Talk to your doctor before taking any painkillers or Naproxen EC breast feeding if your baby is premature, low birth weight, has an underlying medical condition.

Naproxen EC Diarrhoea

Naproxen EC diarrhoea can be a serious side effect if presented with other signs of severe indigestion. Accompanying Naproxen EC Diarrhoea symptoms such as heartburn, pains in the stomach, feeling or being sick can be signs of an ulcer or inflammation in the gut or stomach.

Call your doctor straight away if you experience Naproxen EC Diarrhoea.

Can I Be Allergic to the Coating on Naproxen?

A common question we are often asked is ‘Can I be allergic to the coating on Naproxen?’

For the majority of people, no, the coating for Naproxen EC is called enteric coating. They are used to prevent the medicine from releasing early in the stomach and allows release later into the intestine.

However, some people have been shown to be allergic to certain tablet coatings. If you experience any allergic reaction when taking a pill that has a coating and you didn’t have a reaction with the pill without coating, speak to your doctor and discuss what may be causing it.

For more information about ‘Can I be allergic to the coating on Naproxen?’ speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

Pain Relief

Types of arthritis

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint. In the UK, around 10 million people have arthritis. It affects people of all ages, including children.

The two most common types of arthritis are:

Rheumatoid arthritis


Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in the UK, affecting around 8 million people.
It most often develops in adults who are in their late 40s or older.

Osteoarthritis initially affects the smooth cartilage lining of the joint. This makes movement more difficult than usual, leading to pain and stiffness.

The most commonly affected joints are those in the Hands,Spine,Knees andHips

Rheumatoid arthritis

In the UK, rheumatoid arthritis affects more than 400,000 people. It often starts when a person is between 40 and 50 years old. Women are three times more likely to be affected than men.

Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis are two different conditions. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the body’s immune system targets affected joints, which leads to pain and swelling.

The outer covering (synovium) of the joint is the first place affected. This can then spread across the joint, leading to further swelling and a change in the joint’s shape. This may cause the bone and cartilage to break down.

Other types of arthritis and related conditions

Ankylosing spondylitis – a long-term inflammatory condition that mainly affects the bones, muscles and ligaments of the spine, leading to stiffness and joints fusing together.

Fibromyalgia – causes pain in the body’s muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Gout – a type of arthritis caused by too much uric acid in the body. This can be left in joints (usually affecting the big toe) but can develop in any joint. It causes intense pain, redness and swelling.
Psoriatic arthritis – an inflammatory joint condition that can affect people with psoriasis.

Enteropathic arthritis – a form of chronic, inflammatory arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), the two best-known types being ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

Secondary arthritis – a type of arthritis that can develop after a joint injury and sometimes occurs many years afterwards.

Polymyalgia rheumatica – a condition that almost always affects people over 50 years of age, where the immune system causes muscle pain and stiffness, usually across the shoulders and tops of the legs. It can also cause joint inflammation.

Period pain

Period pain is common and a normal part of your menstrual cycle. Most women experience it at some point in their lives.

It’s usually felt as painful muscle cramps in the tummy, which can spread to the back and thighs.

The pain sometimes comes in intense spasms, while at other times it may be dull but more constant.

What causes period pain?
Period pain occurs when the muscular wall of the womb tightens (contracts).
During your period, the wall of the womb starts to contract more vigorously to encourage the womb lining to shed away as part of your monthly period.

When the muscular wall of the womb contracts, it compresses the blood vessels lining your womb. This temporarily cuts off the blood supply – and hence oxygen supply – to your womb. Without oxygen, the tissues in your womb release chemicals that trigger pain.

While your body is releasing these pain-triggering chemicals, it’s also producing other chemicals called prostaglandins. These encourage the womb muscles to contract more, further increasing the level of pain.

Period pain caused by a condition
Less commonly, period pain can be caused by an underlying medical condition. Doctors sometimes call this secondary dysmenorrhoea.

Period pain linked to an underlying condition tends to affect older women. Women aged 30 to 45 are most commonly affected.

Conditions that can cause period pain include:

endometriosis – where cells that normally line the womb start to grow in other places, such as in the fallopian tubes and ovaries; these cells can cause intense pain when they shed and fall away
fibroids – non-cancerous tumours that can grow in the womb and can make your periods heavy and painful
pelvic inflammatory disease – where your womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries become infected with bacteria, causing them to become severely inflamed
adenomyosis – where the tissue that normally lines the womb starts to grow within the muscular womb wall, making your periods particularly painful
