    A DO prescribed 500mg of this drug for me to "just try it and see if it works", while he was looking right at my medical record showing that I'm on a daily aspirin regimen that cannot be stopped. You cannot mix aspirin and naproxen. I ditched him and this prescription, with my pharmacist's agreement.

    I have fibromyalgia and was prescribed naproxen and an antidepressant. The naproxen doesn't completely relieve the pain, but it does take the edge off and allow me to do most things I want to do. It doesn't make me sleepy. I have had a problem with intestinal bleeding with the naproxen and have had to stop taking it for periods of time.
