General Information on Nalfon
Nalfon is an NSAID, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that is given for the treatment and control of inflammations and pain brought about by arthritis. The generic name for Nalfon is fenoprofen.
Nalfon works by preventing the affects of certain hormones and chemicals that are responsible for pain, inflammation and fever in the body.
You may also buy Nalfon for relief from the symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and moderate or mild pain.
Side effects of Nalfon
Like other NSAIDs, Nalfon is also known to increase the risk of suffering from dangerous and life-threatening blood circulation and heart problems, such as stroke or heart attack. This medication is not to be taken before or after you undergo a heart bypass surgery, or CABG. You must tell your doctor at once if you begin to suffer from blood circulation or heart problems after taking Nalfon. Such problems would be characterized by chest pain, unusual weakness, falling short of breath, slurring speech, vision problems and balance problems.
Nalfon is also known to increase the risk of severe damage and problems in the stomach and intestines, such as intestinal or gastric perforations and bleeding. These conditions could not only turn fatal, but may also occur at any point of time without any signs. Elder patients face a greater risk of such side effects. You must inform your doctor if you suffer from any signs of gastrointestinal problems. These signs include tarry, bloody or black colored stools, vomiting or coughing out blood or vomit that resemble coffee grounds. You must also visit your doctor regularly and perform certain medical tests to evaluate the damage on your stomach and intestines.
You must not buy Nalfon if you suffer from a severe kidney disease, inflammatory bowel disease or stomach ulcer. You may not be able to take this medication if you have previously suffered an allergy to Nalfon, aspirin or other NSAIDs.
Dosage of Nalfon
Nalfon is available in two strengths- Nalfon 200mg and Nalfon 400mg. For treating mild to moderate pain, 200mg of this medication is recommended to be given in a period of 4 to 6 hours. For the treatment and symptomatic relief of arthritis, the recommended dosage ranges from 400mg to 600mg, three to four times in a day. The dosage varies from patient to patient. Nalfon may be taken with a glass of milk or with meals.
Your dosage may need to be altered if you suffer from asthma, polyps in the nose, liver disease, heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure or congestive heart failure. You may also need a different dosage if you have previously suffered from a blood clot, stroke or heart attack.
Nalfon is to be taken exactly as per the dosage prescribed for you. A dosage larger than what is prescribed may cause an overdose. The maximum recommended daily dosage of Nalfon for adults is 3000mg. If you have prescribed this medication for a long time, you would need to undergo regular medical tests.

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.
