  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for systemic lupus erythematosus)
  • Side effects
    Mild (stomach pain)
  • Adherence
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
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.
