Naproxen

Naproxen

Does anyone use naproxen and does it help? I know a lot of people use medication like gabapentin and pregablin for nerve pain. I am not sure if naproxen can help fibro pain.

Hi, yes it's one of the few meds I can tolerate. Especially good for antiinflammatory, ie sore joints. But I do have osteoarthritis as well. Also used it for chest pain, and I take one at night. The other two you mentioned just turned me into a zombie! They numbed the pain and the rest of me too! I'm finding Sertraline/Zoloft far better (just 25mg a day) with a pain pill far more effective. It really is trial and error. Sertraline is an anti-anxiety and reduces tension.

Normally wjen you take these nsai's you need something to protect your tummy. Either prescribed like omeprazole or a natural one like slippery elm or aloe vera.

I was on Tramadol but it isn't covered; yet Oxy is - go figure. Tramadol also made me constipated. So I'm trying to manage my pain symptoms other ways right now. I also tried Lyrica and wasn't a fan of it. I will have to ask about these ones you've mentioned.

I found it better than tramadol with less of a hungover feeling the next day. I also really found norpress to be great.

Not really. Naproxen is an anti inflammatory, and inflammation is not the cause of FIBRO pain. Good if you have pinched a nerve and that's causing you nerve pain, or a compressed disc.
