What are NSAIDs?

NSAIDs stands for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. They are a commonly used type of pain reliever and fever reducer available over-the-counter (OTC) and by prescription. Even if you did not know the term “NSAID,” you probably do know some OTC NSAIDs by their active ingredients or brand names.

How do NSAIDs work?

NSAIDs help relieve pain by blocking pain signals within the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and throughout the body. NSAIDs work differently than acetaminophen (for example, Tylenol®, Excedrin® Tension Headache), the other main type of oral pain reliever.

  • abdominal pain

Drug Interactions

Ibuprofen can interfere with the antiplatelet effect of aspirin, which is a serious warning for those on low-dose aspirin program. Timing is key. If you took the ibuprofen first, wait at least 30 minutes after taking aspirin to take the ibuprofen. If you took the ibuprofen first, you need to wait 8 hours, according to the FDA. (Timing may vary if you’re using enteric-coated aspirin.)

Another ibuprofen interaction involves the use of alcohol. That combination can increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.

Naproxen comes with a list of drugs it can interact with, which means if you choose naproxen as your go-to pain reliever, you must discuss its use with any physician prescribing you drugs.

What Is Naproxen And How Does It Work?

Naproxen is used as a treatment to relieve pain from various conditions such as headaches, muscle aches, tendonitis, dental pain, and menstrual cramps. It also reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, and gout attacks.

Naproxen belongs to a class of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDs. NSAIDs are a type of medications that work by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation.

Naproxen is available under the following different brand names: Aleve, EC Naprosyn, Anaprox, Anaprox DS, Naprosyn, Naprox Sodium, Naproxen EC, Naproxen SR, Naprelan, and Menstridol.

What Other Drugs Interact With Naproxen?

If your doctor has directed you to use this NSAID, your medical doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for them. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with your doctor, health care provider or pharmacist first for more health information.
