What are Naproxen Gastro-resistant Tablets?

Naproxen Gastro-resistant Tablets are a type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). They are designed to be resistant to stomach acid, which helps to reduce stomach-related side effects. The active ingredient, Naproxen, works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.

What are Naproxen Gastro-resistant Tablets used for?

Naproxen Gastro-resistant Tablets are primarily used for pain relief. They can help to alleviate pain and inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, gout, muscle sprains and strains, backache, period pain, and dental pain. They can also be used to reduce fever and relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu.

How do Naproxen Gastro-resistant Tablets work?

Naproxen Gastro-resistant Tablets work by blocking the production of prostaglandins, substances in the body that cause inflammation and pain. By reducing the levels of these substances, Naproxen helps to alleviate symptoms of pain and inflammation.
