Action of naproxen

Naproxen has the same mode of action as the other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs from the subgroup of propionic acid compounds.

When pain develops, messengers, the prostaglandins, are released, which irritate the nerve endings and send pain signals to the brain. In the brain there is pain perception and pain processing.

Naproxen inhibits the production of prostaglandins and so relieves pain and inflammation. It therefore has anti-inflammatory, decongestant and analgesic. By influencing the temperature control center in the brain it also has a fever-reducing effect.

    Naproxen for Migraine

    I have tried many medications for migraine attacks and nothing really helped. Since the seizures are often associated with the pill break, I have been prescribed naproxen for menstrual problems, etc. If I take one, the migraine complaints will be gone within 30 minutes. Sometimes I feel a little dizzy or feel very hungry, but otherwise these tablets are optimally compatible for me and (unfortunately) from now on my constant companion – absolutely recommendable!

    Side effects: Dizziness

    Naproxen for Pain (acute)

    At noon 1 tablet (550mg) taken, in the evening fever – the whole night, since then temperature between 37 ° and 38.5 ° – mostly 38 °. On the second day, swelling appeared over the ears and forehead on the hairline, as well as a swollen lymph node in the neck. The swellings have been going down since then and arrived at the tip of the nose today on the 4th day. They are almost gone on the forehead. The whole thing for a single tablet!

    Pain in the leg – the sciatica hurt by the orthopedist Naproxen 250 mg. After the soak time of 120 minutes was reached, the pain was turned off very well throughout the working day. Almost without side effects, I was able to take 750 mg naproxen for 7 days (500 mg in the morning and 250 mg in the evening). I just realized I got a little worse awake in the first two days.

    Side effects: Fatigue

    In naproxen, I get dizzy and become extremely tired and impotent. But that settles after about 4 hours. Without naproxen, I would not have got my sinusitis under control. With Amoxicillin, I had felt no effect at all, even though I took 3x 1000mg for 14 days. But I did not get any side effects. Only the headache disappeared after 4 days, which I had by the pressure of suppuration.

    Side effects: Fatigue; Dizziness

    Naproxen for Inflammation

    So, after the first day I was impaired in my view or my perception. I was dizzy and somehow dizzy. besides, it really worked very well * laugh *. The next morning, my face was swollen and my hands were puffing up. In addition, I can hardly leave water or stool as usual. Everything was missing. I hope that the ongoing side effects will be gone by tomorrow. After 2 days I put her down. I took 2pcs a day and will never do it again.
