Ulcers or bleeding in the stomach or intestines: Naproxen can cause stomach ulcers, perforation (holes), and bleeding from the stomach. These complications can occur at any time without warning, and are sometimes severe enough to require immediate medical attention. The risk of ulcers and bleeding increase if you are taking higher doses of naproxen for longer periods of time.
If you have kidney disease, liver disease, or heart failure; take diuretics (water pills); or are a senior; you have an increased risk for kidney problems while taking this medication.
The usual dose of naproxen is 250 mg, 375 mg, or 500 mg—twice a day in the morning and evening for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or ankylosing spondylitis.

Diarrhea, constipation, gas, mouth sores, headache, dizziness, thirst, lightheadedness, drowsiness, tingling in arms and legs, cold symptoms, ringing in the ears, hearing problems, and trouble falling or staying asleep are all possible side effects associated with naproxen.
Patients who have had episodes of asthma, rhinitis, or nasal polyps after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs should not take naproxen.
Patient satisfaction with the medication and preference for its future use were significantly lower in the control group than in the other 2 groups (p = .001). CONCLUSION: Prophylactic analgesia using 50 mg tramadol and 550 mg naproxen, delivered orally, can be used to relieve pain during IUD insertion.
To compare the analgesic efficacy of oral tramadol and naproxen sodium on pain during insertion of an intrauterine device (IUD).
Patients were randomly assigned to receive oral tramadol 50 mg capsules (n = 35) or naproxen sodium 550 mg tablets (n = 34) or placebo (n = 34) 1 hour before insertion of the IUD. After insertion of the IUD, pain intensity was evaluated using a visual analog scale (VAS, 0-10). Adverse effects, patient satisfaction with the medication, and preference for using it during future insertions were also recorded.

However, tramadol capsules were found to be more effective than naproxen tablets. Prophylactic analgesia using 50 mg tramadol and 550 mg naproxen, delivered orally, can be used to relieve pain during IUD insertion.

Patients received oral paracetamol–codeine (300 mg + 30 mg; Group P), naproxen sodium–codeine (550 mg + 30 mg; Group N), or placebo tablets (Group C) 30 minutes prior to induction of anesthesia.

The aim of this study was to compared the efficacy of paracetamol–codeine phosphate and naproxen sodium–codeine phosphate on postoperative pain and tramadol consumption during the first 24 hours after a lumbar disk surgery. After Ethics Committee approval and informed consent had been obtained, 64 patients were allocated into three groups. Tramadol consumption was lower in Group P and Group N, compared with Group C ( p < 0.001), and in turn the lowest incidence of tramadol consumption was detected in Group P compared with Group N ( p < 0.001) and Group C ( p < 0.001). Pain intensity, tramadol consumption, and side effects were recorded every 1 hour, 2 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours, and 24 hours after surgery. Side effects were similar between the groups. Patients received oral paracetamol–codeine (300 mg + 30 mg; Group P), naproxen sodium–codeine (550 mg + 30 mg; Group N), or placebo tablets (Group C) 30 minutes prior to induction of anesthesia. Whole study period pain intensity (visual analogue scale scores) was lower in Group P ( p = 0.007) and Group N ( p = 0.001), compared with Group C, however, there was no statistically significant difference between Group P and Group N regarding pain intensity ( p > 0.05). The paracetamol–codeine combination was superior to naproxen sodium–codeine with regard to tramadol consumption. Preemptive administration of paracetamol–codeine and naproxen sodium–codeine combination significantly reduced tramadol consumption and provided more effective analgesia compared with placebo. Patient-controlled analgesia was supplied postoperatively using tramadol.
Hi I've been suffering from severe eye pain and my pain control is not working well enough. I'm currently on Dihydrocodeine 30 mg 6 times daily. And I'm wondering if tramadol is stronger, the information I've found on this drug conflicts and I'm just wondering if you could l me if tramadol would be stronger than the drug i'm.
