VIDEO: FDA makes decision on Naproxen warning labels


The FDA met for two days to decided if warning labels on pain reliever products containing Naproxen could be altered.

A study seemed to suggest that Naproxen might be safer to take than other pain relievers.

But the FDA voted 16-9 against the conclusion that Naproxen has a lower risk of heart attack and stroke than similar anti-inflammatory medications.

Dr. Maria Palafox sorts through what this means to patients in this on-line video.
