I am on Naproxyn for knee pain. Can it be taken on a regular basis. If so, what are the side effects ?

In brief: See details

The major risk is GI including ulcers and bleeds.
I do want my patient to take it long term. If it is, then a protein pump inhibitor such as Prilosec should also be taken daily to protect the GI tract.
