Vimovo is an anti-inflammatory medicine prescribed to treat the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and osteoarthritis.
Vimovo is used to treat reduce pain and inflammation in patients with arthritis who are at risk of getting ulcers in the stomach or small intestine.
Vimovo contains the generic ingredient naproxen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that effectively treats inflammation but may damage the stomach. Vimovo also has a second ingredient called esomeprazole, which is part of the family of drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Esomeprazole decreases acid production in the stomach.
If possible, you should take this medication at the lowest dose possible for the shortest period of time. Follow the dosing instructions from your doctor and take the tablets twice per day, about a half an hour before eating a meal.
These may not be all the side effects of Vimovo 500mg.
Do not take Vimovo if you have any of the following conditions: severe heart problems, an active ulcer, inflammatory bowel disease, high potassium in the blood or bleeding in the brain.
Before taking Vimovo, talk to your doctor if you have a family history of allergy to NSAIDs or asthma. Let your doctor know if you are a smoker, have kidney disease, have poor blood flow to your hands and feet or have high blood pressure.
You can store Vimovo at room temperature, but avoid keeping it in warm, moist places like the bathroom medicine cabinet.
Arthritis is a broad term to indicate a group of over 100 diseases that involve pain or stiffness in the musculoskeletal system. There are two main types of arthritis that damage joints in different ways. Osteoarthritis is the most common, and it involves the “wear and tear” damage to the cartilage in the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis involves the body’s immune system mistakenly attacking the membrane in the joint. This causes inflammation and may eventually destroy the cartilage and bone in the joint. Common symptoms include joint stiffness, swelling, pain or tenderness, redness and reduced range of motion.
