I realize this answer is very, very late ... but may help someone in future.
Yes, you can take naproxen if you have hemorrhoids, unless the hemorrhoids are bleeding badly.
It is a shame that no one has answered this question sooner, but Naproxen can irritate hemorrhoids, especially if you take too much of it. Maybe your hemorrhoids don't bother you, but I suspect if you asked the question, they do. therefore, unless the benefits outweigh the risks of bleeding, and pain, I would avoid it, along with any NSAID.
I have suffered with hemoroides for years, with swelling, discomfort and mucous discharge on a daily basis. Recently i was prescribed Naproxen for a an inflamed cartilage, and since taking it my hemoroides have been completely cured.
