Basic Information on Naprelan

How Does Naprelan Work?

Naprelan and other NSAIDs work by inhibiting the action of certain hormones, called prostaglandins, that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
 

Clinical Effects

By blocking the effects of prostaglandins, Naprelan is useful at reducing fever and pain related to a number of conditions. This includes pain and joint swelling associated with different forms of arthritis and other diseases, as well as pain related to inflammation or bone, muscle, or tendon injury.
 

When and How Do I Take It?

Some general considerations for when and how to take Naprelan include the following:
 
  • Naprelan comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth once a day. It is best if you take your dosage with food.
      
  • For the medication to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Naprelan will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • It is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition. This will reduce the risk of serious side effects.
     

Dosing Information

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