How does Naproxen work?

Just as in the case of any other non-selective NSAIDs, Naproxen is also known to work by blocking COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes leading to decreased prostaglandin synthesis. 

The COX-2 enzyme mediates the desired antipyretic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties offered by Naproxen, while the undesired serious side effects such as gastrointestinal upset and renal toxicities are associated with the COX-1 enzyme. 

How long does Naproxen take to show full results?

The plasma level of Naproxen can be detected within 30 minutes of its oral dosing. However, the plasma level might need approximately 5 hours from the time of its oral dosing, to reach its peak.
