I was told not to take ibuprofen because it will thin my blood so is taking naproxen the same as ibuprofen or is it okay to take
That of course a physician should answer , but my mother was anemic and that medication was eventually found to be adverse when taking it as a long remediation. When she was receiving the standard pre admission tests for a hip replacement , I asked the dr., after the third cancellation of surgery due to the blood work if the naproxen could be the cause as it derives from naproxen. He looked at me and said well I believe you solved this darn puzzle. Meaning it wasn't severe but appeared to slowly but constantly cause more anemia and minutiae bleeding in stomach. Hope this helps you.
