No, but....: You should not be taking more than 4 Aleve (naproxen) per day under any circumstances. If you take four or less, sleep is not a bad thing. Sedation is not a feature of naproxyn, except for my arthritis patients who sleep better or longer because of pain relief. ...Read more

Can't sleep due to suspected endometriosis pain. Close to tears. 525mg of doctor prescribed Naproxen not working. Please help!

Perhaps Pot: Inveterate "endometriosis" pain is anecdotally ameliorated by medicinal cannabis. Sufferer might see a medicinal cannabis consultant physician, and to research indica strains highly concentrated with cannabinidiol, CBD's.

Really bad neck and back pain from a few nights of poor sleep. I have been taking one Aleve (naproxen) every 12 hrs past 2 days but still bad. Double dose?

Not unreasonable: I will often recommend an NSAID "burst", with aleve (naproxen) taken twice daily for a week or 10 days, sometimes at twice the otc dose. This is not a good idea if you have sensitivity to the medication, kidney issues, or so forth, but can be a safe and inexpensive way to relieve residual inflammation. If symptoms persist after the burst, however, a more in depth evaluation is often required. ...Read more

Cortisone injection in the sub acromial or supraspinatous helps in some cases, follow by 1 month of tapering oral corticosteroids. ...Read more

Probably: But it's a bad idea to combine Aleve, (naproxen) which is a NonSteroidalAntiInflammatoryDrug (NSAID) with alcohol. They can both have a toxic effect on the lining of your stomach. Should you develop blac, tarry stools, or vomiting, consult your physician at once ...Read more
