Once, when I had a stubborn flare that was hanging around for weeks I was put on a "round" of Naproxen (Aleve). I took five a day for five days, then 4 for five days until I got down to none and it worked for the flare. However, I did have to stop all NSAIDS for 5 months once because my liver was not happy. As long as your having your kidneys and liver monitored you should be fine.

I take a lot of ibuprofen to help control the pain and stiffness I have. I have stomach problems too and I know the ibuprofen doesn't help that.. That's why I am going to be going back to a gastro doc soon to see what can be done to help with my tummy trouble.
