General Information on Daypro
Daypro is a medication used for the treatment of inflammation and pain caused by arthritis. The generic name of Daypro is oxaprozin, which belongs to a group of drugs called NSAIDs.
Daypro works by lowering the level of certain hormones in the body. These hormones are responsible for causing pain and inflammation.
Daypro may also be prescribed by a doctor for other medical conditions if deemed fit.
Side effects of Daypro
Like other NSAIDs, Daypro may also increase the risk of extremely dangerous and possibly fatal heart and circulation problems such as stroke and heart attack. This medication must not be used immediately before or after a heart bypass surgery. You must seek immediate medical attention if you suffer from any heart or circulation problems on taking Daypro. The signs of such problems would include slurred speech, chest pain, vision and balance problems, falling short of breath, and weakness.
Daypro may also increase the risk of serious side effects and damage caused to the digestive tract, such as bleeding or perforation in the stomach or intestines. Such conditions can prove to be fatal, and these side effects occur without any warning. Older patients taking Daypro stand a greater risk of suffering from such sudden and extremely dangerous side gastrointestinal side effects. You must seek immediate medical attention if you suffer from any symptoms of bleeding in the intestines or stomach. Such symptoms include tarry, bloody, or black stools, coughing up of blood, or dark colored vomit.
Mild side effects that may surface due to Daypro include stomach upset or mild pain, mild heartburn, diarrhea or constipation, bloating, gas, dizziness, nervousness, skin rashes or itching, dryness in the mouth, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, runny nose, and increased sweating.
Other serious side effects of Daypro include reduced or no urination, severe nausea and stomach pain, low fever, dark urine, loss of appetite, jaundice, fever, headaches, sore throat and severe peeling, blistering, or skin redness and rashes. Seek emergency medical help if you suffer from any of the above side effects.
Dosage of Daypro
Daypro is available in one strength- Daypro 600mg. Before taking this medication, you must discuss the risks involved in using the drug. If Daypro has been prescribed to you, you must only follow the lowest effective dose as determined by your doctor.
The recommended dose for relief from the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, is 1200mg once a day. For the treatment of osteoarthritis symptoms, the recommended dose remains the same. However, for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in patients between the ages of 6 and 16, the recommended dose depends on the weight of the patient.
Irrespective of the recommended dose, you must follow the dosage prescribed for you by your doctor.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
