Naproxen For Migraine

naproxen for migraine

Description

Naproxen is used to relieve pain from various conditions such as headache, muscle aches, tendonitis, dental pain, and menstrual cramps. It also reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by arthritis, bursitis, and gout attacks. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

Prescription drugs or over-the-counter, what’s the difference?

Prescription drugs are those that can’t be bought without a written doctor’s prescription. These drugs need a doctor’s supervision to properly diagnose the condition and properly use the drug. Over-the-counter drugs treat conditions that the average person is likely to correctly diagnose. These nonprescription medications also contain instructions that are simple to follow.

several over-the-counter migraine medicines, some that treat migraine in general and others that treat specific types of migraine such as over-the-counter drugs for menstrual migraine.

Some examples include:

  • Aspirin
  • Ibuprofen (NSAIDs), sold under the brand names Motrin and Advil
  • Naproxen (NSAIDs), sold under the brand name Aleve
  • Acetaminophen, sold under the brand name Tylenol
  • Acetaminophen plus caffeine, APAP and Aspirin, sold under the brand name Excedrin Migraine

This risk may occur early in treatment and may increase with duration of use. This drug is contraindicated in the setting of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.

-Gastrointestinal (GI) Risk: NSAIDs cause an increased risk of serious GI adverse events including bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of the stomach or intestines, which can be fatal.
