Naprogesic treats the cause of period pain by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins. It provides effective temporary relief from the aches and pains associated with period pain such as abdominal cramps, headache and lower back pain.
Naprogesic tablets have been specially designed to treat the cause of period pain. It does this by inhibiting the production of the pain producing molecules, prostaglandins. Naprogesic works best when taken the day before your period is due, or at the first sign of period pain or menstrual bleeding (whichever comes first) as this allows it to stop the production of prostagladins before they can cause pain.
Naprogesic gives effective temporary relief from period pain symptoms for up to 8 hours.
Naprogesic (naproxen sodium) is gluten and lactose free.
