Can I purchase this OTC or is it specifically a doctors script. I suffer from Sciatica and would like to know if there are any anti inflammatory OTC items that will produce the same relief.
I currently take Naproxen 500mg. Is it also an OTC item?

Yes, it is available OTC; just not in 500mg pills. I believe the Max OTC dose is 225mg pills.
Look for; Aleve, Naproxen, Flanax, or Naproxen Sodium. All of these are the same naproxen you can get by prescription, just at lower doses per pill/capsule.
Naproxen, Aleve OTC .
