Daypro (oxaprozin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain or inflammation caused by arthritis. Daypro is available in generic form. Common side effects of Daypro include upset stomach, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, gas, heartburn, stomach pain, bloating, drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue, headache, nervousness, skin itching or rash, dry mouth, increased sweating, runny nose, blurred vision, or ringing in your ears.

To treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, the usual recommended adult dose is 1200 mg (two 600-mg caplets) given orally once a day. Pediatric dose is determined by the child's weight. Daypro may interact with antidepressants, cyclosporine, lithium, blood thinners, steroids, aspirin or other NSAIDs. Tell your doctor all medications you use. Daypro should be used only when prescribed during the first 6 months of pregnancy. It is not recommended for use during the last 3 months of pregnancy due to possible harm to a fetus and interference with normal labor/delivery. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

Adverse reaction data were derived from patients who received DAYPRO in multidose, controlled, and open-label clinical trials. Rates for events from clinical trial experience are based on 2253 patients who took 1200 mg to 1800 mg DAYPRO per day in clinical trials. Of these, 1721 patients were treated for at least 1 month, 971 patients for at least 3 months, and 366 patients for more than 1 year.
