Speak with doc: Not certain what you read but the contents are sold OTC as naproxen and esomeprosol is similar to OTC agents. This is not harmful unless you are allergic, have asthma, are on blood thinners or take for prolonged periods of time, do,discuss with your doc because you sought some relief and your doc thought thus drug would,help. There are other options that could be offered if needed.
