Reviews for Naprelan

Anonymous March 24, 2009

For Sciatica: “I am currently taking Celebrex and Prednisone for my Sciatica, 12 days now and no relief. Desperate for pain relief I took 1 naproxen 500mg. Thank God I did. The pill is a little hard to swallow, and it may make you a little nauseous but it will definitely ease the pain and will allow you to get some much needed sleep.”

For Pain: “I have suffered with right lower back pain for many years. I have taken Flexeril, Ibuprofen800, Percocet all of which dulled the pain or put me to sleep. My doctor put me on Naprelan and after two doses I am almost completely free of back pain.”

For Back Pain: “I went to see the doctor after 2 days of heat and inactivity did not help my back. After examining me and taking X-rays he prescribed the Naprelan 500mg time release for me. He also went as far as to warn me that even though I would feel better it was not healed and I needed to take it easy. I am so glad he did because after 2 days I felt almost back to normal even though the back condition was such that I am be referred to physical therapy for it. Long story short, this medicine works, just be careful.”

For Pain: “This drug was and is a godsend. I blew my knee out. Tried me on everything, including Vicodin. Did nothing. dr. Had samples of this tried, 2 days, heaven. I had to wait for knee replacement due to age. This worked better than Vicodin. 4 years later surgery. By then both knees and my Doctor messed up. Now on this 12 years. Now on SSI. No coverage $800.00 a month. Why? Worse they slowed down making it. All the bottles I have same lot number. All expired 2020. Even bottles filled few months before. This drug stopped me from having to take 10-325 Percocet. None of my pain Dr. heard of it. Pharmacist. I use to have bad migraines my whole life. I don’t recall any all these years on this drug. The lower dose did not work. But four 5-325 Percocet don’t work and one 10-325 does. God forbid when I run out. Why people end up on stronger meds. Best anti-inflammatory out there. .”

For Muscle Pain: “I have MS and have been taking Naprelan CR 750 mg every morning for approx. 2 years, I take every morning and within minutes I can move. My Co-pay used to be $45, we changed health insurance and now it's $250 I don't know what I am going to do now. I cannot afford this.”

For Back Pain: “After severe lumbar pain caused by lugging a 5-gallon bucket full of dirt about 100 yards, I tried over-the-counter Doan's tablets and got no relief. Then, my physician gave me 4 Naprelan which I took one a day. In only six days total, my lumbar pain had vanished.”

For Period Pain: “Works great for menstrual pain and doesn't hurt my stomach like other naproxen, as long as I take it on a full stomach. I take one and it works all day. Only draw back is the cost, so my doctor stocked me up on samples. Even with insurance it was outrageous.”
