Beer and Naproxen: I took one 500 mg naproxen about 6 hours ago will I be ok to dink a beer or two at dinner tonight? ANS:This depends on what you mean by "A BEER". I practice in Milwaukee and that can be a gallon boot of beer in a German rest. so I would not do 2 of those. But a reg 8-12 oz should be OK. Assuming this has not caused a problem in you before. Cheers.
