The sodium you have to avoid is table salt, this is not what is in naproxyn sodium. That sodium means it is the sodium salt of naproxyn. Flexeril is the same way. The chemical salt of a drug isn't something you need to worry about.
When a Dr wants you to limit sodium, he is talking about sodium chloride or "table salt". As previously posted, naproxen sodium is a naproxen salt NOT sodium chloride-two completely different things! This is a good question though. If you are trying to avoid sodium, look on labels for sodium chloride or table salt.
