Will Naproxen Help Neck Pain
I had an operation 2 1/2 weeks ago and am on Xarelto. I would like to take 1 x 250 mg Naproxen each night to help with neck pain. Would it be safe?
Naproxen: Different people respond better to one anti-inflammatory over another. Ibuprofen and Naproxen are common and some people often find one more effective than the other.
