      I have been taking Naproxen 375 mg for about two years to help alleviate migraine pain. Not only does it work well with my headaches, it also helps with muscle aches, menstrual cramps and joint stiffness. This medication is a nonsteroidial anti-inflammatory drug and it works by blocking your body’s natural production of certain substances that cause inflammation.

      I take this


      medication twice a day with a glass of water and food, usually breakfast and a small snack late in the afternoon. I noticed, if I do not take with food or milk I do get an upset stomach.

      This medication, just like others do have side effects that if you do experience, you should tell your doctor immediately.

      While, Naproxen can be a great pain reliever, you must first out weight all the cons and pros of your personal situation to make an informed decision. In my case it works great and I have only noticed upset stomach if taken without food. I definitely give this medication a huge thumb’s up!

re : I definitely give this medication a huge thumb’s up
Naproxen can cause numerous medical concerns in relation to your stomach. Generally when prescribed Naproxen the patient is also prescribed something similar to Omeprazole or a medication within that category. This is to help with the acid that enters the stomach.

Upset stomach and heartburn are common side effects with Naproxen. However, if you are taking it for short duration, then you may not need any Omeprazole or similar medicines. These side effects usually happen if you are taking Naproxen for prolong duration.
