For Period Pain: “Ever since I could remember I always had the worst period cramps. I would miss school, work, parties, you name it for the first 2 days of my flow because the pain was just too much to handle. I threw up every month, felt weak, faint and had a hard time even getting out of bed. A year ago I finally decided I’ve had enough and do not deserve to go through this pain monthly. My doctor prescribed me Naproxen 500, and although it certainly isn’t a miracle worker, I am now able to go on with my life and complete my day to day tasks. The discomfort is still mildly there, but I am just so happy to not be on the toilet puking each month from the severe pain. I am able to function with Naproxen and it has helped me significantly.”

For Period Pain: “It’s the only one that works for me. I’m having a lot of cramps and pain every month and the first day I have to stay in my bed but with this medication everything is going away! When I notice the first symptoms I take it and after 20 Minutes I have nothing. I need to take it only one time in the first day. I have zero side effects.”

For Pain: “I’ve been using Aleve for a couple years now for my period pain. Taking one gel capsule right as I start feeling pain seems to get rid of it altogether within about 10mins! I never really trusted that drugs worked well until I used Aleve. Now, I got my last wisdom tooth pulled yesterday. The dentist suggested Tylenol (500mg)+Advil (600mg), and wrote me a prescription for percocet (which I haven’t filled yet) if I’d rather that. Tried the Tylenol/Advil combo. Barely worked. Couldn’t sleep and early morning I grabbed my Aleve to see if that would help… Pain is pretty much gone unless I move that area of the mouth. I love Aleve. I put 9/10 because it failed me just once with my period. (It’s possible I took it too late though.)”

Aleve (naproxen) for Headache: “I took a first dose of two like instructed for body pain and gave me an instant horrible headache that has lingered a bit.”
