 5  cramps none, must take with food though! I have SEVERE cramps, to the point where I would vomit because I was in so much pain. My doc prescribed me this after I told him that I was taking motrin every two hours to control the pain. I only have to take one pill and it works all day! I'm very satisfied. F 25 1 years
 4  severe menstrual cramps diarrhea or constipation, tiny red dots all over my body-only noticeable if you look very closely I start taking 2 pills a day a few days before my period to stop the severe cramps and then continue taking the pills until my 3rd or 4th day on my period. I learned to take the pills w/food, like halfway between a meal I will take a pill and then finish the other half of my meal. I have very tiny red dots, almost like pin pricks all over my arms due to my long-term use (10+ years) of this medication. Verified w/doc that the medication is what caused this. F 30 13 years
 1  Back Pain The absolute worse Drug I've taken. Didnt work, bad Headache and Vomiting for 2 hours on 500mg. I should have never listen to the Urgent Care Doctor. Tanks for nothing. This Drug is Generaly givin to Females for thiere monthly cramps, not a 35yr man with back pain!!! M 35 2 days
 5  severe degenerative joint disease Effective for me in reducing joint swelling in a way no other NSAID has, but I had to discontinue for several months due to stomach pain. Stomach problem was easily cured with licorice tablets. Anaprox relieves my pain without the grogginess of narcotics, and enhances my mobility. Worth it to me, despite possible stomach upset.

 4  cramps none This is the only medication that really helped my cramps. This and Motrin 800mg which leaves me dizzy.

ANAPROX  (NAPROXEN SODIUM):  Naproxen is used to relieve pain from various conditions. It also reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by arthritis, bursitis, and gout attacks. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain. See also Warning section. Some brands of sustained-release naproxen take longer to be absorbed and are not recommended for pain that needs quick relief (such as during a gout attack). Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about your particular brand.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
