My daughter takes liquid naproxen for her JRA but lately its been unavailable. I have been giving her ibuprofen as an alternative but her knee is starting to swell, complains of pain in her knees & she's running a low-grade fever. She has been out of naproxen for 9 days. What can I give her in place of naproxen & ibuprofen?
This question has also been asked and answered here: Naproxen vs Ibuprofen: What's the difference?
I believe that OTC Alieve is Naproxen-just a lower dose than script. When my knees swelled up with fluid my Rheum took a portable ultrasound machine, located and then extracted the fluid. After that he injected a small steroid shot in each knee. It helped so much. I am on Enbrel now also. Best wishes to your daughter. A child shouldn't have such a painful disease. It breaks my heart.
