 1  Anti-inflammatory for joints Severe stomach cramping, diarrhea, muscle and joint aches, dull ache and occasional sharp pain in upper abdomen. The doctor, aka Pharmaceutical drug whore, pushed this drug on me to help resolve some mild inflammation issues. I almost immediately experienced all of the problems listed. I stopped taking it after 2 weeks and never returned to the doctor again. I went to a new doc because this did soo much damage to my stomach in 2 weeks that it gave me an ulcer. The new doc said it was an "allergic reaction". lol. This was a wake up call for me. I am now only using Eastern, natural medicines for my body. Since going all natural, I fixed my stomach and lost 16 lbs in 1 month. Be aware most Family Doctors are nothing more than the Pharmaceutical companies's drug whores. Pushing this stuff on their patients just because a pharm sales rep wears a short skirt and brings them bagels. M 30 14 days

 3  RA none (if taken with milk or food) but it wears off and is not sufficient alone; also elevates blood pressure. It is well known that these non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ('NSAIDs'] like naproxen (with the generic familty of names) are not sufficient to deal with RA and must be used with disease modifying anti-arthritis drugs (DMARD's) like methotrexate, if drugs are to be used. However I have recently discovered natural remedies are superier even if you doctors do not want you to know; such as honey and vinegar and vitamen B complexes. I now consider myself effectively cured at the cost of about $10 per month with nature's solutions and no side effects instead of hundreds for drugs that are promised to eventually wear off. I was also disappointed to discover that this drug is available much cheaper over-the-counter with the name Aleve. If you have complete confidence in the medical profession try reading about Michael Douglas, Bill Clinton (both whom were misdiagnosed until it was nearly too late) or Dennis Quaid and the service waiting for you at the hospital in high priced America) etc. Aberrations? I think not! Check out Michael Moore's documentaries. Why the skyrocketing autism? Try government 'acceptable' air and water pollution; and cancers, ADD etc. We are not being told the truth; it's sorta like being told 'everything is fine and go back to the 2nd tower on 9-11; somebody misdirected a plane at tower 1' I make these comments so that hopefully it might save a life like mine!

 2  Back pain Gastrointestinal problems. Left a weird, burning feeling in my throat every time I took a pill. Naprosyn is crap for pain. Doctors say it works for moderate to severe pain - that is a BUNCH of horse pucky. Doctors are just too scared to prescribe pain medication that actually works. F 32 3 years

 2  Prostatitis Agitation, insomnia, skin discomfort I was prescribed twice daily 500 MG tablets along with CIPRO for Prostatitis. After a day or so, I started feeling extremely agitated and could not sleep for three nights. I also experienced periodic involuntary movements/muscle spasms in my shoulder while trying to sleep. My doctor suggested eliminating the naproxen and giving it about three days to clear my system. Sure enough, the symptoms subsided. I have since read that some NSAIDs are contraindicated with CIPRO and other Fluoroquinolones due to risk of central nervous system reactions. I'm not sure if this is what I experienced, but am just passing along. M 45 4 days

 3  JRA stomach pain, reflux It didn't get rid of my pain. It just turned it to a dull ache. The stomach pain is worth being able to function instead of being in constant joint pain. F 17

It was a good thing I was only 5 min to get home, I had to get another pair of shoes. If you take this and feel a toot coming you are going to be in big trouble!!
