No: However, that is the maximum dose of Naproxen you should take in a day.
Dr. Douglas Mund

Yes: This is a large dose, higher than recommended and could cause problems with stomach upset bleeding or kidney damage. If done on a one time basis probably not a problem if done more consistently there is danger of all of the above problems.

The maximum recommended dose of naproxen is 1,500 mg daily.

My boyfriend & I are trying to get pregnant. I'm on Zoloft (sertraline) & my doc is having me get off it slowly; 1 pill every other day for a month & then 1 pill every 3rd day until gone. Does this sound reasonable?
