Hello Barb! How are you?

Oxaprozin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. It is often prescribed under the name brand Daypro.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach ulceration, increased risk of bleeding, and headache.

Ref: Medline Plus Oxaprozin

The dosage can vary, depending on what condition is being treated, and its severity, so it may range from 600 to 1,800mgs a day, and one should always follow their doctor's prescribing instructions regarding how much to take, and how often they should take it.

Ref: Medscape Daypro Dosing

Is there anything else I can help with?
