Apirex is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat mild to moderate pain and helps relieve symptoms of arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or juvenile arthritis) such as inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain. Apirex does not cure arthritis and will only help you as long as you continue to take it. More up-to-date information here: https://pillintrip.com/medicine/apireks.

Apirex can also be used to treat fevers, menstrual cramps, and other conditions determined by your doctor.

Apirex is available without a prescription (OTC) or with a prescription from your doctor.
