Naprogesic Treats the Cause of Period Pain

Naprogesic treats the cause of period pain by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins.

Naprogesic gives effective temporary relief from the aches and pains of period pain, such as abdominal cramps, headache and lower back pain.

Naprogesic Directions: At the first sign of period pain or menstrual bleeding (whichever comes first), take TWO Naprogesic tablets with food followed by one tablet every six hours. Take all Naprogesic doses with food or milk. The total daily dosage should not exceed 5 Naprogesic tablets. Do not use Naprogesic tablets for more than a few days at a time, unless directed by your doctor.

Naprogesic Ingredients: Each Naprogesic tablet contains

  • Naproxen Sodium…275 mg

What are symptoms of period pain? The type of symptoms and how severe they are vary from woman to woman and period to period. You can feel heavy and bloated, experience cramps, headaches and lower back pain. You can also feel miserable – you might be snappy or tearful, frustrated or depressed. Even if you suffer just one of these symptoms it can make you feel uncomfortable and disrupt your day.

How long does this period last? This also varies. Your period could last for just one day a month or up to four days a month. You’ll most probably find your pain is strongest the day your period starts.

What causes period pain? If you experience period pain within a couple of years of getting periods, then the cause of period pain is most probably tiny molecules called prostaglandins. When you have your period these are released to help the muscles of your uterus contract so it can expel its lining. The strength of contractions depends on the amount of prostaglandins your body produces. If your body produces a lot of these molecules, or if you are particularly sensitive to them, they will cause pain.

How does Naprogesic relieve the pain? Naprogesic has been made especially for period pain. It decreases the amount of prostaglandins produced, this reduces contractions and therefore relieves pain. Naprogesic is effective for the relief of aches and pains associated with period pain, such as abdominal cramps, headaches and lower back pain.

When should I take Naprogesic? Naprogesic should be taken with food. It works best when taken the day before your period is due. If your periods are irregular, take Naprogesic at the first sign of period pain or bleeding (which comes first).

Can severe period pain indicate a problem? If your period pain didn’t start until you were in your mid 20’s or older, it could be a sign that something is wrong, so see your doctor. You should also see your doctor if your period is more painful than usual, persistently severe, if you feel your pelvic pain with bowel movements, or if you bleed in between periods. These could be symptoms of any number of conditions, some of which require urgent attention. So, don’t just put up with unusual pain or bleeding, hoping it will go away. If you have no relief after taking Naprogesic for 3 days, see your doctor.

Can everyone take Naprogesic? Naprogesic is suitable for adolescents from the onset of normal puberty. Most women can take Naprogesic without a problem. However, as with all medication, there maybe a small number of people who are sensitive to the active ingredient. If you experience any side effects, which concern you, stop taking Naprogesic and see your doctor for advice.

Do not take Naprogesic if you have a stomach ulcer or other stomach disorder. If you have asthma, a history of high blood pressure, liver or kidney disease, or are currently taking another medication, you should see your doctor for their advice before taking Naprogesic. Do not use Naprogesic if you have an impaired kidney function or heart failure.

If you are allergic to naproxen, aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-flammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or are actually taking other medicines containing naproxen, asprin or other NSAIDs, do not take Naprogesic.

If you are currently taking anti-coagulant therapy, do not take Naprogesic unless it is with the recommendation and close supervision of your doctor. Severe complications may arise if these two medications are taken together.

Naprogesic has been found in the breast milk of lactating mothers. As the effects of Naprogesic on the newborn infant is not known, it is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers.

Precautions: Do NOT use Naprogesic if you suffer from stomach ulcer, are taking anti-coagulant therapy, or are allergic to naproxen, aspirin, ibuprofen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Asthmatics and people taking other medicines including naproxen, aspirin or others NSAIDs should consult their doctor before taking Naprogesic tablets.
Do NOT exceed the maximum dose of 5 tablets in 24 hours. Do NOT take Naprogesic for more than a few days at a time, unless directed by a doctor.
