Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

As a general rule Celebrex interact with amiodarone by enhancing Celebrex side effects. This increase the risk for major bleeding, confusion etc.

This is why you shouldn't take Celebrex together with Amiodarone unless your doctor recommend you to do so.

On that occasion Celebrex should be taken under medical supervision and should be administered half of normal dose.

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

If You were my patient I would recommend to take Naproxen together with Amiodarone. No interaction have been found between these drugs.

However, since Naproxen is an anti inflammation drug who may have unwanted side effects you should discuss with your doctor before using it.

Wish you health!
