- Naproxin reaction severe
My partner was given Naproxin for back pain, after taking the reccommended dose of 2 per day for about 10 days he had a severe reaction. It started off with what looked like insect bites on his torso and arms, within half an hour, these had turned into huge welps that were blending together, He looked like he had been scalded all over. The itching was unbearable so rang NHS helpline, they said to get antihistimnes in the morning and to stop the Naproxin. My partner started to hallucinate, he said he saw vivid colours, a vortex of bright colours and flowers, then he passed out in the bathroom and it took a while to bring him round. He insisted he was fine and just wanted to sleep. In the morning we went to the GP, got some antihistimines but by now his whole body was in a mess, his hands had swollen to 3 x normal size and he was having cold sweats. By now the weekend was here so when he took another turn for the worse, we had to go to an out of hours gp, he saw the photos I had taken of the welps and immediately prescribed very strong antihistimines to be taken x 4 daily, thankfully after the second day everything normalised, we are in day 3 now and my hope is that when he stops taking the meds, the hives will not return. Very worrying medication in my opinion and one that I will not have in the house again.

From this study (2 years ago):
44 y/o female, type 1 diabetes 38 years, 2 heart attacks, 4 stents, congestive heart failure, renal failure. Was put on statin drugs approx. 6 years ago after first MI. Didn't feel good, felt better after I quit taking them. In January, had another MI, with stent intervention. Approximately 8 weeks later, began feeling worse again, went back to doctor. Had another angio, was told my heart was fine. Quit taking statin and pain went away almost immediately. In July, another small MI, with stent intervention and put back on statin. Immediately began having severe neck and back pain with no injury, trouble sleeping, troubling dreams, extreme fatigue. Almost 6 weeks to the day, began having moderate chest pain and returned to ER, had another angio which showed all coronary open and clear, no reason for chest and back pain.

Hi - currently taking: Lantus and Humalog insulin, Coreg, Hydralazine, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Plavix, Aspirin, Ferrous Sulfate (iron). On occasion I take Lasix for fluid retention and with that I take potassium. I have recently been prescribed Ranexa by my nephrologist, but am not sure I want to take it. Supposedly it is to be taken in conjunction with the hydrazine. Since I quit taking the Statins (cholesterol meds), I feel sooooo much better. Also, I take Norco for overall pain, mostly from neuropathy in my legs.
