What is Vimovo tabs prescribed for?
Vimovo is prescribed for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. It's recommended when there's a high risk of stomach bleeding/ulcers. It contains two medications: esomeprazole and naproxen. It is not used to treat sudden pain. Naproxen in Vimovo works slower due to a special coating. If you have chronic arthritis, talk to your doctor about non-drug treatments or other medications. Naproxen reduces pain and swelling but can cause stomach ulcers, especially if you've had them before. Esomeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), reduces stomach acid to lower the risk of ulcers or bleeding caused by naproxen.
