Brief Answer:
Naprosyn is a strong pain killer

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Naprosyn is an NSAID pain killer with stronger action. It may help in reducing the muscle pain. But do not over dose with pain killers without your doctor's advice.

Please mention the medication names you have been advised. I shall advice you whether or not to take naprosyn together or substitute them.

Wear a Lumbosacral belt, this will help to reduce the pain along with muscle relaxants.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

keep feeling this random flutter in my chest . comes and goes, in ae a week and a half ago, thay said heartrate was high then 140bm, since then doctor gave me atenol 50 mg to slow it down a little, which has worked. then 3 days ago is started again, lasted before for and or so, then same, second day. today it has been on and off throughout the day.



I am curently take ranitidine for gord that i have, and been taking amitriptyline 25 mg at night for last for last 6 weeks, and allso Zopiclone 3.75 mg 2 at night, 13 weeks, doctor said that should reduce amount to 1 a night then gradualy stop taking them. wondering if the tablets an cause irregular hearbeats like i get, can feel it slow then feels like skips a beat and feel it flutter in my chest.

I am 73 year old female. Two months ago I woke up with numb then tingling fingertips on both hands. The symptoms progressed to my fingers and then my hands. Occasionally I notice my hands tingling during the day. Another symptom that plagues me is the constant need to clear my throat and remove phlegm from mouth. Every morning I have a collection of phlegm that I need to expell. Intermittantly my heart beats strongly. Are these symptoms connected? I take synthroid, omeprasol and amitriptyline daily. Otherwise I am in very good health. My blood pressure is 110/70.
