Were you looking for information about Naproxen? Naproxan is a common misspelling of naproxen.
Naproxen (brand names include Aleve®, Naprosyn®, EC-Naprosyn®, Anaprox®, Anaprox® DS, and Naprelan®) is a medication licensed to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness. For example, it can help to treat injuries, arthritis, gout, and menstrual cramps, as well as other types of bone, muscle, or tendon pain. This prescription medication can also be used with other medications in several cold, allergy, and flu products. As a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), naproxen works by inhibiting the action of certain hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Possible side effects include constipation, nausea, and heartburn.
