Drug Uses NAPROSYN is very useful in treating inflammation and swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, spinal arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and acute gout. Usage Following the dosage instructions of your doctor is the best way to use any medication. If you are unsure or do not remember the instructions then you may read the medicine label for more detailed information. You may choose to take NAPROSYN with a meal to avoid an upset stomach or without one. It is very important that you complete the dosage schedule and do not interrupt it in between without seeking prior consultation from your doctor in case you are using it for treating arthritis. Taking your medication at the same time each day is a tried and tested method to avoid missing any doses. Drug Class and Mechanism NAPROSYN falls under nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug and it is used to treat conditions like inflammation and swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, spinal arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and acute gout. Missed Dose Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule. Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects. Storage Store NAPROSYN at room temperature (read medicine label if unsure). Always keep it in a cool dark place that is not directly exposed to sources of heat or moisture and sunlight. Protect it from kids and pets. Overdose An overdose of NAPROSYN may have adverse effects that require immediate medical attention. Contact the nearest emergency poison control center immediately if you notice effects like drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea and vomiting .
