Teva Naproxen Sodium How to Take

Naproxen sodium belongs to a group of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It reduces swelling, inflammation and pain, and is used for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain accompanied by inflammation.

Naproxen sodium is used to help relieve pain due to muscle injury, (e.g., bone, muscle, tendon, cartilage, ligament), dental extraction, menstrual cramps, and cramping after childbirth. It is believed to work by stopping the production of prostaglandins, which cause pain and swelling.

HEALTH CANADA ADVISORY

June 8, 2021

Health Canada has issued new information concerning the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). To read the full Health Canada Advisory, visit Health Canada's web site at www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Allergic reactions: If you have had a reaction to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) or other NSAIDs (e.g., ibuprofen, Ketoprofen, ketorolac) that included a runny nose, itchy skin rash, nasal polyps, or shortness of breath and wheezing, you should not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium). If you experience symptoms of a Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) (e.g., Hives; difficulty breathing; wheezing; swelling of the face, tongue, or throat), get immediate medical attention.

Aseptic meningitis: Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) can rarely cause symptoms of aseptic meningitis (inflammation or swelling of the membranes around the brain and spinal cord that is not caused by bacteria). If you have an autoimmune condition (e.g., systemic Lupus erythematosus, mixed connective tissue disease), you are more at risk for developing this. If you experience symptoms such as stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, vomiting, fever, or changes in consciousness, stop taking Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) can get immediate medical attention.

Bladder problems: Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may cause bladder pain, painful or difficult urination, or increased frequency of urination. If these symptoms occur without an explanation (e.g., infection), stop taking Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) and contact your doctor.

Blood clotting: Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may reduce the ability of the blood to clot. If you are taking anticoagulants (e.g., Warfarin, Heparin) or have Hemophilia or other blood disorders (e.g., low platelets), discuss with your doctor how Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you have a bleeding disorder, do not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium).

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: As with other NSAIDs, naproxen sodium can cause drowsiness, dizziness, and blurred vision. Avoid driving and other activities that require alertness and concentration until you determine the effect Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) has on you.

Fluid and electrolyte balance: NSAIDs such as naproxen sodium can cause fluid retention and edema (swelling). This can lead to high blood pressure or worsening of heart failure. If you have heart failure or high blood pressure, discuss with your doctor how Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you have severe, uncontrolled heart failure, you should not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium).

Naproxen sodium may also cause high blood potassium levels. If you are a senior; have Diabetes or kidney failure; or are taking beta-blockers (e.g., Metoprolol, Atenolol), angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (e.g., Ramipril, Enalapril), or some diuretics (e.g., triamterene, Amiloride), you are more at risk of high blood potassium. If you have high blood potassium levels, you should not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium).

Heart Attack and Stroke: Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may be associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. The risk is increased with higher total daily doses and taking the medication over long periods of time. If you have a history of heart disease (e.g., heart attack, stroke, heart failure) or have risk factors for heart disease (e.g., high blood pressure, High Cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, Kidney Disease) discuss with your doctor how Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Kidney function: Long-term use of naproxen sodium may lead to kidney problems. If you have kidney problems, liver disease, or heart failure; or are dehydrated, on a salt restricted diet, or are a senior, you have an increased risk for kidney problems while taking Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium). If you are taking medications such as diuretics (e.g., Hydrochlorothiazide, triamterene, Indapamide), ACE inhibitors (e.g., enalapril, ramipril), angiotensin receptor blockers (e.g., Valsartan, Candesartan), or Cyclosporine, you are also at an increased risk.

If you have these conditions or are taking these medications, discuss with your doctor how Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you have severe kidney problems, you should not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium).

Liver problems: Rarely, Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) causes liver problems. If you have reduced liver function, discuss with your doctor how Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience unexplained tiredness, loss of appetite, itchy skin, or yellowing of the skin or eyes while taking Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), contact your doctor immediately. If you have liver disease or severely reduced liver function, you should not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium).

Skin reactions: Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) can cause skin reactions, some of which may be severe. If you experience a skin rash, especially where the skin is blistering or peeling, stop taking Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) and contact your doctor.

Ulcers or bleeding in the stomach or intestines: Naproxen sodium can cause stomach ulcers, perforation (holes), and bleeding from the stomach. These complications can occur at any time without warning and are sometimes severe enough to require immediate medical attention.

The risk of ulcers and bleeding are increased if you are taking higher doses of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) for longer periods of time. Other factors that increase the risk of these complications include drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, increased age, smoking, poor health, H pylori infection, and taking certain medications (e.g., warfarin, ASA, Clopidogrel, Prednisone, Citalopram, Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertraline).

If you currently have ulcers in the stomach or intestines that are bleeding, or have an inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), you should not take Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium). If you have a history of these conditions, discuss with your doctor how Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Teva Naproxen Sodium (Naproxen-sodium), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
