Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I have so many problems and take so many medicines I am trying to find out what works what doesn't what interacts which drugs are necessary - 2 years ago had bilateral total knee replacement -- trying to quit smoking, did quit for about a year then started up part time
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have a hyper-oxaluria condition that effects how my skin feels, the high oxalates in foods also effects the skin on my vulvar area. I eat low and moderate oxalate foods. My doctor suggested naproxen because she felt it is better to reduce inflammation from the Fibromalgia flares also. But every time I take it for just even 3 days, one 500 mg tab. I get intense sharp pains in the vulvar area and some low grade depression. This is not normal for me because I am usually enjoy so much of everyday. This would seem that I just need to not take it although the inflammations does go way down. With Advil Ibuprofen I do not get moody and those prick feeling skin problems (Hyper0xaluria) Should I be taking the Naproxen at all? It does work with inflammation better.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Also take 50 mg levosynthroid, multivitamins
