General Information on Naprosyn SR
Naprosyn SR is a controlled released form of naproxen, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, or NSAID. It is given for the treatment of swelling, pain and inflammation caused due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Naprosyn SR does not cure the above conditions, but it provides patients with relief from their symptoms. This drug works by preventing the action of chemicals that cause pain, stiffness and inflammations in the body.
You may buy Naprosyn SR for relieving patients of pain, swelling and inflammations that are caused by other medical conditions if the doctor has recommended it.
Side effects of Naprosyn SR
Naprosyn SR is an NSAID, and hence it could increase the risk of severe and often life-threatening problems in blood circulation and the heart, such as stroke and heart attack. This risk is greater for patients who are on Naprosyn SR for a long time and for older patients. Additionally, Naprosyn SR must not be taken right after or before a heart bypass surgery. If you notice any signs of circulation or heart problems, you must inform your doctor at once. These signs would include problems in speech, balance and vision, falling short of breath, chest pain and unusual weakness.
Naprosyn SR may also increase the risk of sudden and severe stomach problems and intestine problems. These problems can appear spontaneously and may also turn severe. Such conditions include perforations or bleeding from the stomach or intestines. You must tell your doctor as soon as possible if you suffer from any of the following signs of stomach or intestinal problems- tarry, bloody or black colored stools, vomiting or coughing blood or vomit that resembles coffee grounds.
You may not be able to buy Naprosyn SR if you are breastfeeding or in the third trimester of their pregnancy. Your doctor must be contacted if the following mild side effects turn severe- constipation, abdominal pain, dizziness, diarrhea, headache, sleeping trouble, nausea, lightheadedness, heartburn and drowsiness.
Dosage of Naprosyn SR
Naprosyn SR is a sustained release tablet with the shape of an ellipsoid. This medication has a strength naproxen 750mg. The recommended initial dosage of Naprosyn SR is one tablet per day. Your doctor may alter the dosage of Naprosyn SR according to your response to treatment, but the maximum daily dosage is recommended to be kept at 1,500mg.
Naprosyn SR is more effective if it is taken after eating food or with milk. Once you take this medication, you must not sit upright or stand for at least 15 to 30 minutes. The tablet has to be swallowed whole. If you crush or chew the tablets, it may result in an overdose of the medication.
You must take Naprosyn SR exactly as per the dosage prescribed for your doctor. Do not share this medication with others who seem to have the same condition as you or take a dose larger than what has been prescribed for you, as this may cause an overdose.

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.
