 3  Osteoarthritis Took these for a few weeks, they did move the pain but I didn't feel safe taking them for a long time as I am over 65 and they can cause all sorts of problems. I was very depressed too and cried every day. They are good for inflammation but not for long periods, at my age. F 72 24 days

 2  Lower back pain This drug has been taken with co-dydramol. After watching TV I felt anxiety on my chest and could feel my heart rate increasing. I did a little research on both drugs that I am taking and found that people have shown greater side effects of anxiety on Naproxen. I will continue to take it for a few more days to combat the pain but the anxiety is definitely there. If you suffer from depression or anxiety I would think twice about taking this drug. M 31 1 days

 1  Back and Neck Pain Heartburn, chest pains, restless, loss of heat I took this to help relieve some back and neck pain that I been having. I looked up what is a good one. This came up. I took 2(220mg). It said I can for adults but not 3 in a 24hr period. I took with water. After ate dinner, pho(vietnamese soup). Then drank more water. Woke up to tight chest and stomach, heartburn and threw up a little. Was able to sleep after. But woke up to tight chest and heartburn. It like a back and forth feeling.....this should not be over-the-counter. Especially reading into it after my side effects. It easy to overdose, no sorry not easy, you can accidentally overdose.

I have to concentrate SO hard to urinate. I'm urinating a lot more frequently. It feels like someone is stepping on my bladder. I can't believe how horrid these side effects are!

NAPROXEN  (NAPROXEN):  See also Warning section. Naproxen is used to relieve pain from various conditions such as headache, muscle aches, tendonitis, dental pain, and menstrual cramps. 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. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
