I took Metformin for three years. When my A1C bottomed out at 5.1, my doctor stopped the med altogether, since then, with my own diet, I am at A1C 5.3 unmedicated. That said, In the years I took Metformin, I also took 50 mg Tramadol 4/day with 400 mg Ibuprofen, 1-2 mini-aspirin (81 mg) and the occasional Tylenol #3, 1/2 grain Codeine. I seriously doubt that some naproxen sodium with Metformin could harm you. The Met works on your blood glucose, the naproxen is an OTC pain reliever. I do not like Naproxin Sodium, it irritates my stomach. I prefer Ibuprofen, works well with my prescription Tramadol without the chance of liver damage. Luck, my friend. :-)
Simon; Yes Naproxen is okay to take with Metformin too. And if you can take it with your meals when you take it to protect the stomach. But it is a good idea to always let your doctors know what you are taking. be it this or vitamins you name it. best to be safe than sorry, Always happy to answer here but also use your Pharmacist if in dought they know more about medicine than most doctors have a great day.
