Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Daypro
Daypro and Alcohol [posted 7/16/98]
Answer: Both can induce/cause gastritis or inflammation of the stomach. In general, judicious used of alcohol with Daypro would probably be ok if you are not prone to gastritis with alcohol. Excessive use of alcohol (more than 2 drinks at once) should be avoided.
Answer: Daypro(oxaproxin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory made by Searle Co. It does not seem to be clinically different from most of the other NSAIDS (like Motrin, Aleve, Indocin, etc.). It is
supposed to have less GI toxicity, but I haven't been overly impressed with this characteristic.
Like the other cousins, it has mainly GI toxicity, nausea, gastritis, diarrhea, and ulcers.
