Hi my name is Kelly. I have been taking Naproxen for a few months now for back pain, but for the last few weeks I have been getting really bad nightmares. I am now getting them several times a night and they seem to be getting worse. They mostly involve my partner and people I know either trying to hurt me, chase me, hit me and in these nightmares I know I am about to be killed. I wake up shaking and scared after every one. The thing with these nightmares is there are no monsterstwhile or ghosts, they involve people close to me so are all the more scary. Does anyone else experience anything like this while taking Naproxen.

Hi I am being investigated for bowel cancer after 2 low hg counts and we have a family history, but am asymptotic. I have just read that Naproxen which has been prescribed twice daily 500mg. No one has mentioned to me that it may be a side effect of the meds. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I am female, 57 years old. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis a year and a half ago. I started to 500 mg of Naproxen (one in the am and one in the pm) about 3-4 months ago. Just recently I have been having a terrible time with constipation. Was wondering if the Naproxen could be the problem.
