Naproxen is also a non addictive medication. Remember to take Naproxen with food to avoid stomach irritation.

In brief: Yes

Naproxen is an anti-inflammatory medicine similar to over the counter motrin.
Generally speaking, nsaids do a better job when there is inflammation, and they also perform better with bone pain.
