Anaprox (Naproxen Sodium) Product Information

Anaprox is a pain medication given to people who are struggling with arthritis, menstrual cramps, bursitis and gout.  It is an NSAID, or non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, so it will help relieve the pain associated with your condition, but it is not a cure.

This medication is normally used to treat inflammation, caused by arthritis, bursitis, menstrual cramps or gout.  Naproxen sodium works to decrease the chemical made by the body that cause pain and swelling.

Pharmacist Tips

  • Be alert for the symptoms of cardiovascular thrombotic events, including chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness, or slurring of speech, and to report any of these symptoms to your health care provider immediately.
  • Report symptoms of ulcerations and bleeding, including epigastric pain, dyspepsia, melena, and hematemesis to their health care provider. In the setting of concomitant use of low-dose aspirin for cardiac prophylaxis, there is an increased risk for GI bleeding.
  • Anaphylactic reaction (e.g., difficulty breathing, swelling of the face or throat) are possible and you should seek immediate emergency help if these occur

Naproxen FAQs

Can I take this with food?

Anaprox should be taken with food to reduce the risk of stomach ulceration and bleeding. 

 

Can I take this if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

avoid use of Anaprox and other NSAIDs starting at 30 weeks gestation because of the risk of the premature closing of the fetal ductus arteriosus.

The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for Anaprox and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from the Anaproxor from the underlying maternal condition.
