Reviews for Naproxen

Dee8Dee March 17, 2015

Aleve (naproxen): “I've been diagnosed with costochondritis for 2 yrs now. I have other joint issues, along with military neck and tendinitis. Nothing has worked as well and effectively as Aleve. I take anywhere from 220-500mg when needed. All my aches and pains subside and I can move about freely. Even with nerve damage. I am so thankful for Aleve!”

Flanax Pain Reliever (naproxen): “I have had costochondritis for two months now. I have found that my body best responds to naproxen and toradol/ ketorolac. These have both been prescribed to me after my success with Flanax (Naproxen).”

“Script completely cured me of costochondritis after almost a year of tests, being misdiagnosed, and doctors guessing. No side effects since I took it after breakfast and dinner daily... 12 hrs apart.”

Aleve (naproxen): “Been taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen three times a day for 12 days per docs order with little relief for Chostocondritis and back pain. Getting pretty bummed out so decided to try Aleve (not generic - the time release isn't the same) and within hours had relief. Finally able to sit comfortably!”
