Naproxen has definitely been giving me bad dreams since beginning my prescription 4 or 5 days ago. Every single night has been filled with dreams of negativity including death, rape, chaos and haunted occurrences. They seem to be vivid as any other dream in the past, but they are all very negative as a whole.
