Try switching... Ibuprophen is not as strong or lasting as naproxen. You can get 500mg tablets to take twice daily (90 days worth) for $10.00 at most walmarts, krogers, target, etc. Switching to Naproxen may not give you gas and and better pain relief. Try some otc alleve and see if your GI tract works better.
