Drug Description


Oxaprozin is a pharmacological agent utilized in the treatment of arthritis, effectively alleviating pain, reducing swelling, and mitigating joint stiffness. It belongs to the class of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). 

For individuals managing a chronic condition such as arthritis, consult with a healthcare professional regarding the potential incorporation of non-drug treatments or alternative medication options to address pain management. Refer to the Warning section for further guidance and precautionary information. 

Uses and Dosage 

Prior to initiating the use of oxaprozin, carefully review the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist. Read the guide each time you receive a refill of the medication. Should you have any inquiries, kindly consult your doctor or pharmacist for clarification and guidance. 

Administer this medication orally in accordance with the instructions provided by your doctor, typically once daily. Consume a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) alongside the medication, unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. Refrain from lying down for a minimum of 10 minutes after taking this drug.  

If you experience stomach upset while using this medication, take it with food, milk, or an antacid. 

The dosage of oxaprozin is determined based on your specific medical condition, body weight, and response to treatment. As per the manufacturer’s recommendation, the daily dosage for adults should not exceed 1,800 milligrams or 26 milligrams per kilogram, whichever is lower.  

To minimize the potential risks of side effects, such as stomach bleeding, utilize this medication at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration feasible. Refrain from increasing your dosage or taking the drug more frequently than directed.  

For chronic conditions like arthritis, continue adhering to the prescribed regimen as instructed by your doctor. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor or pharmacist. 

In certain conditions, such as arthritis, it may take up to 2 weeks of regular usage before experiencing the full therapeutic benefits of this drug.
