Comment:
I was taking Vioxx for back pain for less than a year and developed an ulcer. Then the Dr. prescribed Naproxen after my ulcer was repaired. Not a good drug for me. Naproxen started the ulcer again, major stomach pain, heartburn, and nausea at times. I have discovered, for me, that I cannot take any kind of anti-inflammatory drug, even over the counter ibiproferin (?) will start my stomach pain ... Show Full Comment
