Who should not take Naprelan?

You should not take Naprelan if you have ever had any medical conditions that could heighten your risk of complications with Naprelan. Risk factors include: asthma; smoking; drinking more than three alcoholic drinks a day; heart disease or circulation problems such as heart failure or leg edema; high blood pressure; kidney disease; liver disease; stomach bleeding or ulcers; an unusual or allergic reaction to aspirin, naproxen or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), other medicines, foods, dyes or preservatives; dehydration; poorly controlled diabetes.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, attempting to become pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not take Naprelan if you have had coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery recently.

It is especially important for you to tell your doctor if you take other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), as combining them with Naprelan may cause an overdose.
