Naproxen Sodium + Esomeprazole Magnesium



  • Naproxen and Esomeprazole are used to treat the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of arthritis that affects the joints.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis and to reduce the risk of stomach ulcers in patients who are at risk of NSAID-related gastric ulcers.



This is made up of an Esomeprazole Magnesium coating that releases quickly and an enteric-coated Naproxen core. As a result, Esomeprazole is released into the stomach first, followed by Naproxen dissolution in the small intestine.

Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic and antipyretic effects. The activity of Naproxen is to stop the production of prostaglandins. Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that inhibits gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the H+/k+ -ATPase in the gastric parietal cell. By working selectively on the proton pump, Esomeprazole reduces gastric acidity by blocking the final stage in acid generation.


Dosage & Administration

Carefully consider the potential benefits & risks of this tablet & other treatment options before deciding to use this tablet. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals. If a dose of Esomeprazole lower than a total daily dose of 40 mg is more appropriate, a different treatment should be considered.

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis-

Adults: One tablet twice daily of either: 375 mg naproxen/20 mg of esomeprazole; or 500 mg naproxen/20 mg of esomeprazole

Concurrent use of NSAIDs and ACE inhibitors, diuretics, and beta-blockers may diminish their antihypertensive effects.

When this tablet is taken with warfarin, the chance of a bleeding problem is raised.

Esomeprazole decreases gastric acid secretion and may interfere with the absorption of medicines whose bioavailability is influenced by gastric pH. (eg. Ketoconazole, iron salts and digoxin).

With regard to food and others: In healthy adults, taking naproxen and esomeprazole along with a high-fat meal has no effect on naproxen absorption, but it considerably prolongs tmax by 10 hours and lowers peak plasma concentration (Cmax) by around 12%.



Hypersensitivity to any of the tablet’s ingredients or substituted benzimidazoles.

After taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, you may experience asthmay urticaria or other allergic responses.

In the case of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, use during the peri-operative period.
