Who should not take Naprosyn, Anaprox, and Anaprox DS?

Tell your doctor if you or a relative have ever had any factors that could raise your risk of complications with Naprosyn, Anaprox and Anaprox DS. Risk factors include: asthma, smoking, drinking more than three alcoholic drinks a day, heart disease or circulation problems like heart failure or leg edema, high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease, stomach bleeding or ulcers, growths in your nose, dehydration and poorly-controlled diabetes.

Inform your doctor if you have had an unusual or allergic reaction to naproxen, aspirin, other medicines, foods, dyes or preservatives. It is crucial that you tell your doctor if you are taking other NSAIDs, because the combination may cause an overdose.

Before taking Naprosyn, Anaprox or Anaprox DS, tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant or breastfeeding.

Taking these drugs shortly before or after coronary artery bypass graft surgery may cause complications.
