Having had a Stent put in 6 months back, and having felt fine till recently I was wondering if the Naproxen the VA prescribed at 375 twice a day was the problem. It certainly I have been taking these Naproxen 500 MG Enteric Coated pills for about 3 weeks they were perscribed for a contusion in my right hand. The first.
I also experienced crippling stomach pains one evening which persisted into the late night. I have tendonitis in my right hand and started 500mg Naproxen 2x daily. Immediay, I began to have blood in my stool and gained 4-5lbs fluid in one week. Thanks everyone for their posts, very helpful. I have stopped the Naproxen and was told by my pharmacist to call doctor and maybe switch to Motrin IB.
My sympathy for everyone that has had bad experiences personally, or for a family member. I take 1000 to 1500 daily, and really the only difference I feel is that my sleep is even more disturbed.
