My doctor said I should try to get off the Naproxen which I take each morning 500mg and 500mg at bed time.
Been taking this dose for over 5 years.. So I tried by not taking the evening one. Three days I did not take that evening one and Now for a week I
am back with lots of Pain,,,So I do not want to stop Naproxen because it helps stop the pain and I can live
