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.
