I was given ibuprofen and co codamels which didn't have much effect. So went back to th dr and was prescribed naproxen. It was the lower dose one which I was told I could use with the co codamel but not the ibuprofen. I tried this for a month, but it didn't touch the pain. So I was then prescribed the higher dose of Naproxen, but told not to take anything else. I'm into me second week of taking them, and the pain is worse then ever. I have also just been found to be anemic and am on iron tablets. Is there any connection to why the naproxen isn't working.
