What Is Naproxen Used For?

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

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.

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.

Naproxen 250mg and Naproxen 500mg is typically used pain relief. It reduces inflammation and pain in joints and muscles. For more information, take a look at Naproxen BNF.

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
