Abstract
Naproxen, (S)-6-methoxy-α-methyl-2-napthanlenaeacetic acid, is a NSAID, that is available by both prescription and over-the-counter in US. Currently, only the tablet and suspension formulation of this preparation is available in US. In this manuscript, we have investigated the stability of naproxen cream with two proprietary bases at both room temperature and at 4 ⁰C over a three month period, and find that both 5% and 20 % formulations are chemically stable for at least a period of two months under both of these storage conditions.
