  • Was prescribed naproxen for shoulder pain and inflammation, twice a day for 10 days. Pain disappeared almost immediately. No discernible side effects. Hoping the effects will be long lasting after stopping the medication.

  • I take lanzoprazol everyday to try to prevent stomach problems. Haven't had any side effects as yet. I am on another medication for nerve pain, but this eases the deep ache on my muscles

  • Have taken naproxen as Aleve for about 18 years. About six years ago advised to limit all NSAIDS (ibruprofin, Aleve) after endoscopy because of small ulcer or the doctor said I would return with bleeding ulcer. So try to take only 1-2 days per month. The only product to eliminate menstrual cramps in 30 years of menstrual pain. Also taken for back and tailbone pain.

  • I had my circulation cut off, it fell like it was burning a hole in my stomach (with lots of food), and it made my heart race. I couldn't sleep, was jittery and lacked focus. This stuff is poison and very dangerous!

  • This is the only thing that works for my cramps-which are debilitating. 20 minutes and I'm able to function again. Easy on my body as well.
