Advice & Tips: Taking Naproxem without eating does cause stomach pain, but this can easily be alleviated by eating with it. I take it when I experience chest pain (pericarditis) and I usually take an antacid at the same time (just one daily). I get pericarditis maybe 6 times per year, and I take the naproxem for 2weeks each time. I think it helps.

Advice & Tips: I used to have really bad acid reflux for about two years. Then, when I was at The Menninger Clinic for nine weeks to basically retrieve my life from certain doom, I learned from one of the observant nurses there, Daniel, that I didn't take my pain meds with food. He asked me if I had acid reflux and I said, yes, quite badly. So from then on I have taken my vicodin and aleve with food and my acid reflux has released me from it's fiery grip.
