I've had 3 knee surgeries over the last 10 yrs.I was on Naproxin on and off for most of the 10 yrs. 3yrs ago I developed ulcers and have since become disabled because of being on it?
Long term use of NSAIDs is known to cause ulcers.
If your doctor put you on Naproxen for 10yrs without offering alternatives (Tylenol, COX-2 selective NSAIDs), or without providing preventative treatment (Proton Pump Inhibitors), he/she did not do his/her job.
