These tablets really help my neck and back arthritis... but I'm spending a lot of time with loose stools - will this settle down? I take 1x 250g twice a day thanks
Naproxen - Will upset stomach settle?

Try Mobic instead - it is a Cox inhibitor similar to the miracle drug for pain Vioxx which was taken off the U.S. market. Mobic or Celebrex may be what you need. I don't know why doctors continue to prescribe Naproxen via RX or OTC - it is just a nasty drug always with the side effect of gastric/colon problems.
You didn't mention how long you've been taking it. also, have you reported this to your Dr?
Take Naproxen with food or milk if it upsets your stomach, it can cause ulcers and bleeding, and should not be taken for a long term, diarrhea is a rare side effect of Naproxen, I would let your Doctor what is going on. look on this sight for more information on this drug.
Naproxen is pretty hard on the stomach. Have you taken it with food?
