Re: Naproxen?

i was on naproxen years ago after a back injury. my doctor told me it was just a muscle relaxer, and that it was basically the same thing as Aleve. it certainly did nothing for my skin.

Re: Naproxen?

It's used more often as a pain reliever. I have not heard of it being used to reduced the inflammation of acne and doubt it would help. When I get headaches I'll take the OTC version of it and it has had no noticeable effects to my acne. Plus there is speculation that long-term use can cause dependency.

Definetly does not help with acne! I started breaking out pretty bad after going on birth control pill last year, and a month after I started I injured my leg somehow and was perscribed Naproxen for the pain and swelling. It did help a little with the leg pain, but my acne remained the same... and believe me I would know the difference because I was breaking out with HUGE cysts that stay forever!

Re: Naproxen?

naproxen is the same as the pain reliever Aleve. its an NSAID, so as to say, its an anti-inflammitory. but it doesnt relieve acne. during my period I take a naproxen everyday for the cramps, and my skin is no better.
