I am taking a Diclofenac (morning) and naproxen (night) for 2 months for back pain. Can this drugs cause a hair loss? I lost a lot of hairs. Thanks
Paranoia: No. Tachycardia is not how a brain tumor presents or is diagnosed.
No: Both of them are nonsteridal inflammatory drugs and taking both of them at the same time may give you more severe untoward side effects such as abdominal pain, bleeding. You shoul take one of them after a meal. .
Diclofenac: Yes but not for a long time.See 1 more doctor answer
Diclofenac and Aleve (naproxen): Dear Jessi: Diclofenac is in the NSAIDs class of anti-inflammtory drugs and Aleve (Naproxen) is also a NSAID. The risk for side effects with NSAIDs is high, such as stomach ulcers. I discourage patients from taking more than 1 type of NSAID together as side effects can be serious even if you don't have stomach pain. There are other effects, such as kidney and liver problems with NSAIDs. Nisha
Usually one or the o: Usually you take one or the other and not both types. It will be ok this one time. But I say this knowning nothing else about your total health problems You need to discuss this with your physician.
I have a pain inside my beck. I was treating it by NSAIDs which helps everytime but today not. Can I chance Naproxen for Diclofenac after 8 hours?
No: Do not mix NSAIDs as that increases the risks of side effects.

Trigger thumb- used 500mg Naproxen 4 a wk. Still somewhat swollen & lock/unlock. Use longer? Diclofenac gel b4 that. Any option instead of cortisone?
Which is better: Naproxen or Voltaren (diclofenac) for trigger finger (thumb) treatment? Want least side effects but effective inflammation treatment.
Naproxen v Voltaren (diclofenac): That's like asking if Batman is better than Superman! Both Naproxen & Voltaren (diclofenac) are NSAIDs. For that matter, so is Ibuprofen. It's just that Naproxen & Ibuprofen are available w/o prescription in States whereas Voltaren (diclofenac) requires prescription. Because they're all NSAIDs, they function exactly the same. For each drug, risk & benefit varies depending upon dose. In the end, only you can decide which 4u
Hello. I took 500mg of naproxen two hours ago for a muscle/joint injury contracted in the gym. However, the naproxen isn't having much effect. Can I take one (or two) tablets of diclofenac sodium 50 mg now to alleviate pain or should I wait until the nap
Hi, I am desperate for a pain killer, life is just so restricting without pain relief. I am 69 female with severe lower back pain. I take diclofenac tramodol and paracetamol for pain. I also take 50mg sertraline. Would naproxen help? There is nothing sugi
No: Naproxen will not help. Given the little info you provided it is difficult to order specific advice concerning therapeutic options.
Do I need wear arm sling if have rotator cuff injury and shoulder strain? Is safe take ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) with diclofenac 75mg?
Ask the Dr: The Dr who diagnosed the injury is the best to ask for recommendations specific to your case - but it's worth trying the sling to see if the protection it provides reduces your pain. The medications you mention do not have reports of problems in combo, so just use as directed and notice anything you don't like. I hope you heal well. See Dr if worsens or lasts too long (weeks).
As good as any: There are at least a dozen antiinflammatory meds on the market. Naproxen is effective but not for everyone. The reason there are so many medications is because not one is uniquely superior to the others. One person will "swear" by Naproxen while another says it "does nothing for me".
