No there not similar, norcos have hydrocodone in it which is a opiate and naproxen does not, hope this helps

Well, what exactly does naproxen do to you? I was given these by a physician and they do not seem to be working except they make me sleepy.

What kind of pain do you have? Naprosyn is for inflammatory pain. There are no allergy meds in prescription naprosyn.

Naproxen is just like taking OTC aleve, it comes in prescription strength and it will make you sleepy, light headed, etc, this are normal side effects of the prescription strength, it's different from norcos because it's not a opiate pain reliever, which is some of the strongest pain meds available. If your still having pain that's not helped by the naproxen or your side effects become worse then you can call your doc and he can prescribe something a little stronger.

Great answer Kelly, you are correct and you explain it so well.

Naproxen is generally used as an NSAID pain reliever. It can have allergy meds with it. One side effect for some people is drowsiness or dizziness. You should report this to your doctor.

It is also known as Alleve as a store brand. Some people do have sensitivities. You can look it up in the search box at the top of the page and it will give other side effects. There are other meds to take. See what the doctor suggests.

FYI: Naproxen comes in many forms and some have allergy meds with them. Not knowing if this is regular naproxen or not, I thought that should be,looked at just in case. :-)
