Daypro Side Effects
Adverse effects are possible while taking Daypro. Commonly reported side effects include headache, fatigue, and stomach pain. Rare problems, such as congestive heart failure or depression, are documented in less than 1 percent of people. Some side effects of Daypro may indicate a more serious problem and should be reported to your healthcare provider, including chest pain, shortness of breath, and slurred speech.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Daypro® (oxaprozin). However, not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, they are generally minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Daypro. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Daypro side effects with you.)
Daypro has been studied extensively in clinical trials, with thousands of people worldwide having been evaluated. In these studies, side effects are always documented and compared to those that occurred in a similar group of people not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine. Based on these studies, the most common Daypro side effects included but were not limited to:
- Heartburn or indigestion (dyspepsia)
- Stomach pain
- Elevated liver enzymes
- Unexplained bleeding
- Ulcer in the stomach or intestines (peptic ulcer)
- Tiredness or weakness
- Unexplained rash
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
