Not likely: The plugged up hearing is not likely for to naproxen. More likely, the symptoms are due to fluid or pressure in the middle ear, which is usually related to seasonal or environmental allergies. The hearing symptoms may improve with over the counter antihistamines and nasal saline sprays or rinses.
