- Naproxen is not approved for use by anyone younger than 2 years old. Do not give this medicine to a child without medical advice.

- Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase your risk of stomach bleeding.

- Avoid taking aspirin unless your doctor tells you to.

- Ask your doctor before taking any other medication for pain, arthritis, fever, or swelling. Many medicines available over the counter contain aspirin, salicylates, or other medicines similar to naproxen (such as ibuprofen). Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much of this type of medication.

- Ask your doctor before using an antacid, and use only the type your doctor recommends. Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb naproxen.

- Always take your naproxen tablets with or just after a meal so you do not get an upset stomach.

- Since naproxen is sometimes used only when needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are on a schedule, use the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
