Vimovo (naproxen and esomeprazole magnesium)
VIMOVO is a fixed-dose combination of enteric coated naproxen, a pain-relieving nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and immediate-release esomeprazole magnesium, a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). VIMOVO modified-release tablets is indicated for the symptomatic treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, in patients who are at risk for developing non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-associated gastric and/or duodenal ulcers and where treatment with lower doses of naproxen or of other NSAIDs is not considered sufficient1.
VIMOVO was co-developed by AstraZeneca and POZEN Inc. and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration on April 30, 2010.
