Anaprox DS Description

Anaprox DS (double strength) or generic Naproxen Sodium is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is usually prescribed for treating sprains, strains, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Anaprox DS Works

Anaprox DS or generic Naproxen Sodium blocks certain enzymes called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) that produces prostaglandins, an inflammation-causing chemical that is involved in the immune response when there is a danger or threat present. As chemicals are released and blood flow increases, the inflammation localizes and tries to eliminate the threat while removing any damaged tissue so you can heal.

Sometimes a misplaced alert can be activated when your immune system acts inappropriately and attacks your own tissues without a true threat, as with rheumatoid arthritis. This is an autoimmune disease that can cause painful inflammation, redness, swelling, and permanent damage.

Conditions Treated by Anaprox DS

Joint pain, muscle sprain or strain, and post-operative pain can all benefit from a prescription for Anaprox DS or generic Naproxen Sodium when taken as directed. Anaprox DS is more potent than the regular Naproxen alternative so it’s perfect for getting through short term injuries and the tough pain of arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis usually affects your joints and sometimes other tissues. The immune cells that your body uses to attack any threats to do you harm become erratic and begin attacking your own tissues. This chronic inflammatory disorder affects your hands, feet, and the lining of your joints making it painful to walk, bend, climb, open jars, hold a pen, and many more tasks that most people don’t even have to think about. Rheumatoid arthritis has no cure, but it can be managed with Anaprox DS to provide relief and the ability to move about with less struggle or pain.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, causing permanent damage to any joint in your body. The cartilage that protects the ends of your bones becomes worn so your joints begin to rub against bone-on-bone. Anaprox DS can help alleviate pain and improve joint function, but there is no cure for osteoarthritis.

Before You Take Anaprox DS

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or nursing so it can be decided if Anaprox DS is the right medicine for you. Go over your medical history and list all Rx medication and OTC drugs, vitamin supplements, or herbal remedies you are taking as there could be a negative interaction when combining with Anaprox DS.

Proper Use of Anaprox DS

Because this NSAID works to suppress both COX-1 and 2 enzymes to slow the production of prostaglandins, you may experience direct irritation of your gastric lining as the COX-2 helps protect it from the effects of stomach acid. To lower your risk, take Anaprox DS until your pain is under control and ask your doctor about a lower dose for maintenance.
