Protecting the stomach (NSAIDs)

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I'm on Naproxen, which is used to treat muscal / skelatol problems. Naproxen can also cause issues with the stomach. (I alreay have enough problems with mine) Is there anything I can do to protect my stomach, please? Or would it have to be another prescribed drug that will only help?

    You can ask to be prescribed an anti-acid medicine (omeprazole/lanzaprazole etc) which helps.

    In the short term, try taking your medicine with food and don't be tempted to take them more often than recommended or at a higher dose! :)

    Thanks Kaff.:) I have been told about taking it with or after food.
