For Period Pain: “Anaprox is a lifesaver for migraine and endometriosis. Allowed me to function on a daily basis until I got my endometriosis diagnosis. Didn’t completely alleviate my pain but made it manageable and didn’t make me too drowsy to go about my business. Also is great for migraines if I catch them early enough. The only downsides are that I did have to increase my dose over the years and it is hard on the stomach.”

For Back Pain: “Allergic reaction to Anaprox, this is poison I do not understand how the FDA approved this medication that almost kill me. I do not recommend it because of the dangerous side effects and should be taken out of the market. IT IS POISON AND I ONLY TOOK ONE 559 MG IN THE GENERIC FORM ( NAPROXEN )”

For Muscle Pain: “I am a 47 year old female with a knee injury. The doctor gave me Anaprox 550 mg twice a day and I was not able to take it. I started taking it and on the third day, I started getting sick to my stomach, lost appetite and was dizzy. I cut down to 275mg twice a day and I still felt quizzy. This is too strong for me.”
