Pharmacological properties.

Nalgesin forte, is a drug naproxen, has analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effect. The mechanism of action is associated with a non-selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase 1 and 2 (COX-1, COX-2) activity. The film-coated tablets, Nalgesin forte, dissolve well, are rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and provide a rapid onset of the analgesic effect.


Absorption from the gastrointestinal tract - fast and complete, bioavailability - 95% (eating practically does not affect either the completeness or the rate of absorption). The time to reach the maximum concentration is 1-2 hours, the connection with plasma proteins> 99%, the half-life is 12-15 hours. Metabolism is in the liver to dimethylnaproxen with the participation of the CYP2C9 enzyme system. Clearance - 0.13 ml / min / kg. It is excreted 98% by the kidneys, 10% of them are excreted unchanged; with bile - 0.5-2.5%. The equilibrium concentration is determined by taking 4-5 doses of the drug (2-3 days). With renal failure, metabolites can be accumulated.
Indications for Nalgesin forte
• Diseases of the musculoskeletal system (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic, juvenile chronic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew's disease), gouty arthritis, rheumatic soft tissue damage, osteoarthrosis of the peripheral joints and spine, including radicular syndrome, tendovaginitis, bursitis),

• In the complex therapy of infectious and inflammatory diseases of the ear, throat, nose with severe pain syndrome (pharyngitis, tonsillitis, otitis).
• Feverish syndrome with "colds" and infectious diseases. Nalgesin forte is used for symptomatic therapy (to reduce pain, inflammation and reduce elevated body temperature) and does not affect the progression of the underlying disease.


• Hypersensitivity to naproxen or naproxen sodium; with anamnestic data on an attack of bronchial obstruction, rhinitis, urticaria after taking acetylsalicylic acid or other NSAIDs (complete or incomplete acetylsalicylic acid intolerance syndrome - rhinosinusitis, urticaria, polyps of the nasal mucosa, asthma);

• Oppression of bone marrow hematopoiesis;
• Pregnancy, the period of breastfeeding;
• One Nalgesin forte tablet contains 550 mg of naproxen, so the drug is not recommended for children and adolescents under 15 years of age.

To reduce the risk of developing adverse events from the gastrointestinal tract, the minimum effective dose should be used as little as possible. Children younger than 16 years of age, the drug is prescribed only on the advice of a doctor.

When using the drug as an antipyretic agent, the initial dose is 1 tablet (550 mg), then 1A tablet (275 mg) is taken every 6-8 hours.

Side effect

Side effects are most frequent when using high doses of Nalgesin forte:
- from the digestive system: constipation, abdominal pain, indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, ulcerative stomatitis, erosive and ulcerative lesions and bleeding of the gastrointestinal tract, increased activity of "liver" enzymes, impaired liver function, jaundice, bloody vomiting, melena;
- Central nervous system: hearing loss, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, depression, sleep disorders, inability to concentrate, insomnia, malaise, myalgia and muscle weakness, slowing reaction rate, aseptic meningitis, cognitive dysfunction;
- from the skin: itching, ecchymosis, excessive sweating, purpura, alopecia, photodermatosis;
- On the part of the sense organs; tinnitus, visual impairment, hearing impairment;
- From the side of the cardiovascular system: puffiness, shortness of breath, palpitations, congestive heart failure, vasculitis;
- On the part of the genitourinary system: glomerulonephritis, hematuria, interstitial nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, renal failure, renal papillary necrosis, menstrual irregularities;
- from the hemopoietic organs: eosinophilia, granulocytopenia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, aplastic anemia;
- from the respiratory system: eosinophilic pneumonitis;
- allergic reactions; skin rashes, hives, angioedema, epidermal necrosis, erythema multiforme, Stephen-Johnson syndrome;
- Others: thirst, hyperthermia, hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, increases bleeding time, hemolytic anemia.
If you notice such a phenomenon, stop taking the medication and, if possible, consult your doctor.


A significant drug overdose can be characterized by drowsiness, dyspeptic disorders (heartburn, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain), weakness, tinnitus, irritability, in severe cases - bloody vomiting, melena, impaired consciousness, convulsions and kidney failure).
A patient who has accidentally or intentionally taken a large amount of Nalgesin forte should wash his stomach and conduct symptomatic therapy: activated charcoal, antacids, h2 receptor blockers, proton pump inhibitors. Hemodialysis is ineffective.

Interactions with other drugs

In the treatment of anticoagulants should be borne in mind that naproxen can increase the time of bleeding. Do not use the drug simultaneously with other NSAIDs (increased risk of side effects). Patients who simultaneously receive hydantoins, anticoagulants, or other medications that bind to a large extent with plasma proteins should monitor signs of potentiation of the action or overdose of these drugs. The preparation Nalgesin forte can reduce the antihypertensive effect of propranolol and other beta-blockers, and may increase the risk of renal failure associated with the use of ACE inhibitors. Under the action of naproxenum, natriuretic action of furosemide is inhibited. Inhibition of renal clearance of lithium leads to an increase in the concentration of lithium in the plasma. The use of probenecid increases the level of naproxen in plasma. Cyclosporine increases the risk of developing kidney failure. Naproxen slows the excretion of methotrexate, phenytoin, sulfonamides, increasing the risk of developing their toxic effects. Antacid preparations containing magnesium and aluminum reduce the absorption of naproxen. It is necessary to inform your doctor if you suffer from other illnesses or allergies, or take any other medicines (including over the counter medicines).

special instructions

Do not exceed the dosage indicated in the instructions. To reduce the risk of developing adverse events from the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), a minimum effective dose should be used with the minimum possible short course. If pain and fever persists or worsens, you should consult your doctor. Patients with asthma, with blood clotting disorders, and also patients with hypersensitivity to other analgesics before taking Nalgesin forte should consult a doctor. Caution should be given to patients with liver disease and kidney failure. In patients with renal insufficiency, it is necessary to monitor the level of creatinine clearance. At a creatinine clearance level below 20 ml / min: naproxen is not recommended. In chronic alcoholic and other forms of cirrhosis, the concentration of unbound naproxen increases, therefore, such patients are recommended lower doses. Nalgesin forte should not be taken with other anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs, except for doctor's prescriptions. Older patients are also recommended lower doses.
You should avoid taking naproxen within 48 hours before surgery. If it is necessary to determine 17-corticosteroids, the drug should be discontinued 48 hours before the test. Similarly, naproxen may affect the determination of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid in the urine.
The use of naproxen, as well as other drugs that block the synthesis of prostaglandins, can affect fertility, so it is not recommended for women who want to become pregnant. Each Nalgesin Fort 550 mg tablet contains approximately 50 mg of sodium. If you limit salt intake, this must be taken into account.
Influence on ability to drive and other mechanisms
Naproxen slows the reaction rate in patients. This should be taken into account when driving a car and performing tasks that require special attention.
