I know a lot of people with arthritis are prescribed Naprosyn. Has it helped with pain, or anything else. Any bad experiences, or good ones??? Thanks.

Re: Naprosyn

Naproxen works great for some people. Many take it along with something else, such as plaquenil. The main problem that most people have with it is stomach upset but many take it with no problem what so ever. For others it simply isn't strong enough.

Re: Naprosyn

I agree with the previous poster - Naprosyn seems to work for some people better than others. Personally, I find Bextra to be better and I've not experienced any side-effects (like I did with Celebrex).

Re: Naprosyn

thanks for the replies. I asked because my dr prescribed me Naprosyn for my knee. I was wondering what people thought of it, then I read a lot of people use it for I posted. Wow, didn't expect good responses...thanks guys. So far I feel a little nauseated. Which isn't too bad compared to pain.
