 2  Ankylosing Spondilytis Double Vision Since Naprelan was discontinued, a drug that worked well and I took for years, Vimovo was the closet replacement. It's a time released drug that spares your stomach. It didn't work as well as Naprelan and caused blurry and double vision. F 14 days

VIMOVO  (ESOMEPRAZOLE MAGNESIUM; NAPROXEN):  This medication is used to treat the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis when there is a high risk for stomach bleeding/ulcer. This product contains 2 medications: esomeprazole and naproxen. This product should not be used to relieve sudden pain. The naproxen starts to work slower than other naproxen products because of a special coating (delayed-release). 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. Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness. Naproxen can cause stomach ulcers, especially in patients with a history of stomach ulcers. Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that blocks acid production in the stomach. This combination provides the benefits of naproxen and may reduce the risk of ulcers or bleeding that can occur with naproxen use.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
