Naprosyn E Description

Naprosyn E (enteric coated) is commonly prescribed for the relief of muscle, bone, and joint pain with inflammation. The coating enables the drug to be released slower over a longer period of time so it is more convenient as a maintenance Rx drug for chronic inflammatory conditions, such as many forms of arthritis, as it does not act fast enough if you need to relieve the acute pain of a sprain or strain.

Target the Enzymes That Produce Inflammatory Chemicals

Naprosyn E or generic Naproxen EC is called a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that will provide relief from pain and inflammation. When taken as directed, Naprosyn E will work to block the effects of 2 main types of enzymes called cyclooxygenase or COX-1 and COX-2. The first plays a role in normal cellular housekeeping that includes maintaining your stomach lining. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

The second COX enzyme is responsible for producing inflammatory chemicals as an immune response to an injury. By inhibiting the actions of cyclooxygenase, the amount of inflammatory chemicals produced, such as prostaglandins, is reduced so inflammation and pain calms down. High doses of NSAIDs over an extended period of time can irritate your stomach lining due to the inhibition of COX-1.

Conditions Treated by Naprosyn E

There are several types of arthritis that can cause many individuals to lose freedom of mobility and agility. They can experience difficulties trying to dress themselves, grasping objects, picking up a child, or even walking to the corner store. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and it can affect men and women equally.

Risk factors for this condition include increasing age, genetics, being overweight, or an injury to a joint. Sometimes, having one form of arthritis can lead to another. There is no cure for arthritis but Naprosyn E can provide relief from the pain and inflammation so you are able to be mobile and more independent again.

Before Naprosyn E is Prescribed

Ask your doctor if Naprosyn E is safe to take if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Provide your doctor with a list of all OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements, and discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have. Your doctor can then determine if Naprosyn E (Naproxen EC) is right for you.

Naprosyn E Precautions

When you first start taking Naprosyn E, it can take up to 4 hours before you notice any relief but once it is in your system and you take it as prescribed, you will maintain a steady level of the drug to keep inflammation down. Do not take any antacids at the same time as Naprosyn E as it can interfere with how the tablet dissolves.
