Only other over the counter pain reliever you should take with naproxen is tylenol. The other options such as ibuprofen or aspirin should not be taken along with the naproxen.

If the naproxen isn't helping, then you need to tell the doc about it too.

i've been telling the doctors about it for 4 years and they've used me as a guinea pig with other useless prescriptions that don't work and i end up taking them back to the doctor to dispose of.

in this day and age you can tell your Dr. that a pain med does not work until your blue in the face... It's all about PROFIT over care and patience.

What kind of pain are you having? Are you taking it daily? More than once a day? What about the dosage? Naproxen can do a really bad number to your digestive system, I hope that you are aware of this!! It can destroy your liver, eat away at your stomach, and cause reflux. Actually, it does more damage than opiods. I hope that you are not taking it daily! It can really hurt you!! Please talk to your doctor about other options, besides Naproxen.

I only take it when my back "acts up". The lower back pain is excrutiating!! The doctors have known about it for years and refuse to let me take Valium, which I know for a fact helps my muscles relax. They have tried so many other prescriptions and nothing else has helped, so I am now still stuck with over the counter naproxen. And I HAVE been worried about the liver damage it causes and I DO now have acid reflux, which I have never had before in my life. (64 years old)

I apolagise as I thought the question was what is equally good for pain relief as well as Naproxen. I already knew that other pain relief such as Asprin or Paracetamol could & can be taken along side Naproxen, as an when required 4 to 6 hourly

my doctor told me to absolutely NOT take ibuprofen with the naproxen 500.
