What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that people using NSAIDs, including Naprosyn, may have a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke than those people who do not take NSAIDs. This warning does not apply to those who take aspirin. This risk may be higher in people who have been taking NSAIDs for a long time. These events can occur without any warning and can lead to death. Be sure to tell your doctor if you have or have ever had any of the following:
 
You should also talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking Naprosyn if you have:
 
  • Asthma
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Liver disease or failure
  • Kidney disease or failure
  • Bleeding problems (or if you are taking medicines that decrease the ability of your blood to clot)
  • Diabetes
  • Stomach ulcers, stomach bleeding, or a history of either condition
  • Any allergies to medicines, including sulfa drugs, aspirin, or other NSAID pain medicines.
     
Also let your healthcare provider know if you:
 
  • Are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant (see Naprosyn and Pregnancy)
  • Are breastfeeding
  • Drink alcohol frequently
  • Smoke
  • Are having or have recently had heart surgery.
     
Also tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
