Reviews for Naproxen to treat Ankylosing Spondylitis
"Took Naproxen 500mg twice a day for four days, then ended up in an ambulance on-route to A&E department. Naproxen also gave me a serious heart problem, I now attend the heart failure clinic, and the ENT department for tinnitus. I am a UK citizen based in the UK. I regret taking them."

Naprosyn (naproxen): "I can tell it's working! When ever I take the medication my pain reduces from like a 6 to a 4 which is awesome!!"

Aleve (naproxen): "I tired Aleve. It works to some extent for a few hours but it stops. I get better and longer lasting results with Advil liqui-gels for arthritis."

Aleve (naproxen): "Works very well for back pain especially when it also affects the surrounding muscles. But, you should always take it after a meal as it can cause serious stomach pain."

Leader Naproxen Sodium (naproxen): "I too have Ankylosing Spondylitis and it started when I was only 19. The flares of inflammation were 6 months apart in the first couple years. When I got my first bad flare though I thought I was going to die. Finally after a month of not being able to move, sit-up, walk, or lay on anything but my side. I finally got out the walker and made it down the stairs although in excruciating hip pain. Felt like knives were being stabbed into my sciatic nerve. I then realized after I went to the emergency room that an NSAID was to thank for my relief! Thank you Naproxen."

Aleve (naproxen): "I suffer from severe form of Ankylosing Spondylitis. My spine is totally fused. I have had all kinds of drugs to control the pain. Recently the pain had reached my neck, it was unbearable. I took so many different kinds of pain killers all prescribed by the doctors and none worked. Until my daughter gave me ALEVE to try and for the first time in my life I want to be a spokesman for your company."
