Yes, naproxen, like all NSAIDs, is filtered by the kidneys and liver.
Overdosing on NSAIDs can cause itching and fluid retention, which signals kidney and liver problems.
Naproxen and other NSAIDS are safe for the liver but have the possibility of kidney damage. Tylenol can damage the liver. If you have kidney damage from NSAIDS, it is reversible if you stop taking NSAIDS. Kidney damage can occur with no symptoms so if you regularly take NSAIDS you should have your kidney function tested on occasion.
