I have been taking 2 naproxen twice a day for a couple of years with very good pain relief. Cardiologist now recommends I stop or alternate with Tylenol. Two weeks in and I am miserable . 67 years old, female, retired nurse. Kidney and hepatic tests are normal. I'm going back to what works.

I have taken this drug at different times for different types of pain. I can't take ibuprofen anymore because it is very hard on my stomach. Tylenol type pain relievers don't help me much so I have tried the naproxen. It is pretty effective at relieving moderate pain and reducing more heavy pain.

Have used daily for over 3 years, increased dosage in cold months with good effect now am decreasing dosage as gastric reflux has increased. Have noted slight tinnitus for the first time. Recent physical reveals no serious problem, but I do not want to risk other side effects. If warmer months allow I will stop use. If pain returns I will consult my primary physician, possibly try steroid injections.

Aleve does not work for me, but unexpectedly Benedryl & similar allergy meds help greatly to reduce my lower back pain! I have tight glut, piriformis & hamstring muscles on left side. NSAIDS have never helped. "Allergy" meds seems to calm the involved nerves. Happy to have discovered this! I take just 1/2 caplet at bedtime, and if needed same mid-day, and I keep on moving!

Aleve has never worked for me, but unexpectedly Benedryl and allergy meds (chlorpheniramine maleate + phenylephrine HCL, for ex.) help greatly to reduce my lower back pain! I have tight glut, piriformis & hamstring muscles on left side. NSAIDS have never helped. "Allergy" meds seem to calm the involved nerves. Happy to have discovered this & wanted to share. I take just 1/2 caplet at bedtime, and if needed same mid-day, and I keep on moving!
