Reviews for Naprosyn
For Back Pain "Not a great help and addiction ads really irritate a person in pain, get real"
For Osteoarthritis "After 3 years on naprosyn 500 one a day I started to get irritable anxious finding fault all the time about stupid things. As soon as I stopped I was normal again . I don't know what tablet to take now as I am very sensitive to a lot of drugs."
For Back Pain "I had been suffering with sciatica for a number of years, when it suddenly worsened. I started getting shooting pains and severe weakness in both of my legs. After one dose of 500mg I was able to sit comfortably and walk without the worry of one of my legs giving out from under me"
For Rheumatoid Arthritis "This medicine made a great difference overnight for me."
For Chronic Myofascial Pain "You can't take with GERD"
For Ankylosing Spondylitis "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!!"
For Gout, Acute "Naproxen is the only thing that will make my gout subside when I have an attack."
For Muscle Pain "Works well in the long term, not for immediate pain relief."
For Back Pain "I've been using this medicine on & off for 25 years. I get muscle spasms every few years & virtually drop to the floor with pain. 2 to 3 days with this stuff & I'm back swinging again. Better than Forte or Voltaren by a long shot."
For Sciatica "This was my last chance to get relief, my dr had advised that if we couldn't get the nerve to relax, surgery was the next option. The medication helped, the only thing I would only take this at bed time. This medication is very strong and makes you very sleepy, but it really does work. I only had to use it for a short time. I will not take any thing longer than a month and only when I have to."
For Back Pain "This medicine is not helping at all. My back pain seems to be getting worse not better."
For Pain "I had ongoing pain and swelling for a full year after knee surgery to repair three rips in my right knee. It felt like bone rubbing on bone, felt hot to the touch with swelling After going through narcotics and Motrin for swelling, I worked on accepting that I would be dealing with this for a long time as a chronic condition. After my 1st dose of 500 mg of Naprosyn, it was a Godsend. For the 1st time in a year, my knee actually felt normal."
For Osteoarthritis "This is an excellent pain medication as well as an anti inflammatory. I take 500 mg twice a day and had no adverse side effects."
For Pain "Had a pain in left knee develop rather quickly. I am 70 and Dr. said was most likely arthritis. Prescribed Naproxyn and it worked very well for that knee. I have a bad right knee also that has been bad for 30 years and is getting worse. I hoped it would too get some relief but it has not. Curious about that. No noticeable side effects."
For Tendonitis "I have Achilles tendonitis and this does not relieve the pain too much."
For Tendonitis "Fell onto my shoulder off my sons skate board, initially felt no discomfort, but my shoulder a week or so after began to become painful, enough to stop me swimming. Waited 3 months for it to go, no reduction on pain, went to doctor who prescribed Naprosyn within a day or two pain had eased, carried on for 2 weeks and now swim regularly, very slight discomfort but take remaining pills as and when needed, but discomfort so small rarely have to take them. Negatives, I think when taking medication I suffered stomach discomfort."
For Pain "I have occasional stomach upset but its nice not to hurt. I take it three times a day and at night. I take it with Flexeril."
For Back Pain "Back pain from accident squared away after second dose. The pain went all the way to my foot and up my back into my neck and shoulder. Just started medicine today!!! 10/11/2012"
For Back Pain "Made a big difference in my hip and knee pain"
For Pain "Does not help with my chronic pelvic pain. "
For Pain "Naproxen has not worked for me at all. It is just like taking Advil or Aleve. "
For Costochondritis "It took a few weeks before I felt any difference in my chest pain but it helps relieve some of the pain so I could lay down and sleep at night."
For Osteoarthritis "Did its job but made me lethargic."
For Rheumatoid Arthritis "I've had RA for 4 years. 500mg naproxen tablets were my first treatment. They definitely helped the day get better and be able to function daily. However, they did not stop the morning stiffness and pain or the build up of inflamation in my body. I definitely needed a more serious drug to stop the progression of the disease."
For Osteoarthritis "Helped the inflammation and pain, but gave me insomnia."
