Brief Summary:
In this study, the aim is to compare the efficacy of single dose naproxen sodium and combination of naproxen sodium-codeine phosphate on post-operative pain in adult patients undergoing arthroscopic menisectomy.Pre-emptive oral naproxen-codeine may be safely and more advantageous than naproxen alone.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Arthroscopic Meniscus Surgery Drug: Group N:Naproxen sodium Drug: Group NC :naproxen sodium codeine phosphate Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Patients receiving preemptive oral naproxen sodium (Group N) or naproxen sodium-codeine phosphate (Group NC) were assigned in 2 groups.Preoperatively, drugs were given orally by a nurse unaware of the study to both groups within 60 minutes before surgery. Hemodynamic datas, possible side effects, pain and sedation levels of patients were recorded. Patient's pain and sedation levels were statistically assessed.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Group Naproxen sodium (Group N)
Group N received naproxen sodium 550 mg 60 minutes before surgery.

drug will be given 60 minutes before surgery
Other Name: Apranax fort tb, Abdi Ibrahim Ilaç,Turkiye

Active Comparator: Group Naproxen sodium codeine phosphate (Group NC)
Group NC received naproxen sodium 550 mg+30 mg codeine 60 minutes before surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain scores as measured by Visual Analogue Scale were significantly lower in Group Naproxen codeine (group NC) at all time points compared to Group Naproxen (group N) in 61 patients who underwent arthroscopic meniscus surgery. [ Time Frame: postoperative 18 hours ]
    patients will be followed postoperatively 18 hours for pain levels
