Proxidol® (naproxen Na) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that can reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. It is particularly suited to relieving muscle pain and pains associated with injury or bruising (e.g injury of the muscle, joint, tendon, ligament, etc.), as well as dental and/or dental extraction pain, and pain from cramping including menstrual cramps. It is also used in the treatment of arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, bursitis, gout, and other related conditions that exhibit inflammation, stiffness, and pain.
Typically Proxidol® (naproxen Na) 275mg is used for pain relief, while Proxidol DS® (naproxen Na) 550mg is better suited for management of chronic conditions such as arthritis. Pain relief will typically occur about 1 hour after administration, although it could take three to seven days for relief of arthritic pain. Your doctor can specify dosage for your particular case; doctor supervision is important to mitigate risk factors including adverse effects on your stomach, liver, and kidney. Pregnant women should not use this drug in the last 3 months of the pregnancy.
