Naproxen Pills

A healthcare provider may recommend naproxen (brand names include Aleve®, Naprosyn®, EC-Naprosyn®, Anaprox®, Anaprox® DS, and Naprelan®) to treat pain, inflammation, fever, and stiffness caused by various conditions. There are several forms and strengths of this medication available; some forms require a prescription, others are available over-the-counter.
Available in the form of a liquid, caplets, and tablets (pills), naproxen can help reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness caused by many conditions, including injury, arthritis, gout, and menstrual cramps, as well as other types of bone, muscle, or tendon pain. It is also combined with other medications in several cold, allergy, and flu products.
This medication is usually taken by mouth no more than twice daily or every 12 hours as needed (or as directed by your healthcare provider) for pain relief. It is best if you take it with food.
