What causes random bruises on legs? I have been taking naproxen for around 2 weeks at 500mg once a day, I have 3-4 small bruises that i don't know where they came from

In brief: Family practice

Normally Naproxen once a day would not cause bruising but it can potentially interfere with the clotting mechanism. Just as Aspirin may do so.
Stop it and let your dr know what's going on.

Naprosyn (naproxen) can work as Aspirin and contribute to easy bruising

Naproxen can lower the platelet count.
It might contribute to that.
