Neoprox Tablet Uses

Neoprox is an NSAID used for the treatment of painful and inflammatory conditions like arthritis, joint pain, back pain, migraine and menstrual cramps. It contains the active ingredient Naproxen which has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving actions. Like other NSAIDs, Naproxen works by reducing pain and inflammation in the body by blocking the effects of cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. These enzymes are involved in the production of prostaglandins, lipid autacoids that can cause unwanted pain and inflammation if their levels are in excess.
