Dosing With Naprelan: An Introduction

The dose of Naprelan® (naproxen sodium) your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition you are being treated for
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be currently taking.
     
As always, do not adjust your Naprelan dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and Ankylosing Spondylitis

The recommended starting dosage for most people with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or ankylosing spondylitis is Naprelan 375 mg or 500 mg once a day.
 
If pain is still present after several weeks, your healthcare provider may choose to increase your dose. If pain still does not improve, your healthcare provider may recommend other options for pain relief.
