What is the longtime side effect of gabapentin,naproxen and instaflex?

I am currently on high blood pressure and high cholestrol medication as well as gabapentin and naproxen and I was wondering if I should start taking Instaflex? Maybe I could cut out the naproxen, which is hard on my stomach.. I have neuropathy in my feet and up my legs towrds my knees ( that s why the gabapentin) Thank you for a Dr. s answer.

Gabapentin has various side effects notably Sedation, Dizziness, Ataxia, Fatigue, Gastrointestinal irritation, Weight gain, Edema. If you are on BP medication, you should avoid naproxen, NSAID (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug), as it will offset BP control Instaflex is a ​dietary supplement for Osteoarthritis and can be taken, if it suits one.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
