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
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.
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.
