What is Naproxen for?
Please note: Ask your own doctor if it is safe for you to buy Naproxen online if you are over the age of 65 or if you currently have, or have had, stomach ulcers previously.

Please note: If you are currently taking any of the proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) listed above for stomach protection, and are medically suitable to buy Naproxen online, please state in your online consultation which PPI you take and the strength of the drug.

If you are wanting to buy treatment for arthritis, Naproxen could be ideal due to it being able to treat many different types of arthritis, and has been linked to less health problems compared to other drugs like it.
How does Naproxen work?
When you buy Naproxen tablets online, it works by blocking the effect of chemicals in your body that are known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.
It is those enzymes that produce chemicals called prostaglandins, which make their unwanted appearance at the site of injury or other damage, resulting in the pain and inflammation you feel. By limiting the amount of prostaglandins, this also limits your pain and inflammation, giving you comfort and relief to get on with your day.
