Anaprox DS does not cause drowsiness, its not been reported or has been documented as its side effect.

If you think its too bothersome? Please ask your doc to prescribe a more suited med.

Take care, be well & safe, please, best wishes!

Sorry Rajive, no disrespect but I beg to differ. For some people Anaprox DS can cause drowsiness. Most people dont have this effect but a few people do get very drowsy while on this drug. I had a friend who took this medication for menstrual cramps and fell asleep while smoking a cigarette and nearly caught herself on fire! She wasnt hurt but I'll never forget that. Here is a copy of the side effects and drowsiness is indeed listed.

Gastrointestinal (GI) Experiences, including: heartburn*, abdominal pain*, nausea*, constipation*, diarrhea, dyspepsia, stomatitis

Central Nervous System: headache*, dizziness*, drowsiness*, lightheadedness, vertigo

Dermatologic: pruritus (itching)*, skin eruptions*, ecchymoses*, sweating, purpura

Special Senses: tinnitus*, visual disturbances, hearing disturbances

Cardiovascular: edema*, palpitations

General: dyspnea*, thirst
