Azapropazone is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It is manufactured by Goldshield under the tradename Rheumox.[1]

It was available in the UK as a prescription-only drug, with restrictions due to certain contra-indications and side-effects.[2] Azopropazone has now been discontinued in the British National Formulary.

Azapropazone has a half-life of approximately 20 hours in humans and is not extensively metabolized.[3]
