I have temporary intense pain and was prescribed naproxen that is supposed to be taken twice daily. I took one in the AM and by lunch it's already wearing off. I take ibuprofin, another NSAID, on a regular basis and was told by my doctor it's okay to take more than the recommended dose as long as it's not for a long time (because of long term side effects etc). I only need the naproxen pain relief for a few days until my antibiotics kick in. Can I take for example 3 doses instead of 2?
