About Ultravana Period Pain Relief 250mg tablets (Naproxen)

  • What are Ultravana Period Pain Relief Tablets?

    Ultravana Period Pain Relief 250mg tablets contain naproxen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This medication offers extended pain relief from dysmenorrhea (commonly referred to as period pain), allowing you to continue with your daily or nightly activities.

    Period pain, also known as dysmenorrhea, is a common gynaecological condition characterised by painful menstrual cramps. It typically occurs before or during menstruation.

    As it is gastro-resistant, Ultravana isn't absorbed in the stomach, instead it is absorbed when it reaches the small intestine.

    Ultravana may be suitable for women aged 15-50 who are experiencing primary dysmenorrhoea (period pain). Please complete the pharmacy consultation to determine whether Ultravana is suitable for you.

    What is Naproxen

    Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used for its analgesic (pain-relieving), anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic (fever-reducing) properties.

    Naproxen works by inhibiting the activity of cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes, specifically COX-1 and COX-2. These enzymes play a crucial role in the conversion of arachidonic acid to prostaglandins, which are compounds involved in inflammation, pain, and fever.

    By inhibiting COX enzymes, naproxen reduces the production of prostaglandins. This decrease in prostaglandins helps to alleviate inflammation, reduce pain, and lower fever.

  • Directions

    Ultravana should be taken for a maximum of 3 days per menstrual cycle.
