Were you looking for information about Naproxen? Naproxin is a common misspelling of naproxen.
Naproxen is a medication that is licensed to reduce pain and inflammation caused by various conditions, such as injury, arthritis, and menstrual cramps. By inhibiting the action of certain hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body, the medicine is effective in several ways. For example, it reduces pain related to bone, muscle, or tendon injury or inflammation; reduces fever; and alleviates pain and joint swelling associated with different forms of arthritis and other diseases.
Naproxen is available as either an over-the-counter or prescription drug and comes in tablet, caplet, and liquid forms. Most people tolerate it well, but side effects can occur. Some of the most common side effects seen with this drug include constipation, heartburn, and headache.
