Some other info for taking Naproxen:
# The medication comes in tablet, caplet (capsule-shaped tablet), or liquid form. It is usually taken by mouth no more than twice daily or every 12 hours as needed (or as directed by the doc/pharmacist) for pain relief. It is best if you take it with food.
# For naproxen to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. The medication will not work if you stop taking it.
# It is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition. This will decrease the chances of developing serious side effects.
