Generic Name: NAPROXEN 220 MG - ORAL Pronounced: (nah-PROX-en) Aleve Oral Uses
Naproxen is used to relieve pain from various conditions
such as headache, muscle aches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, or arthritis. It
is also used to reduce fever and relieve minor aches and pain due to the common

ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to
treat your pain. See also Warning section.
Do not give this medication to a child younger than 12

My Doctor is concerned that I am going to become addicted to the Vicodin but this was the point of me going to the doc. because I was money on Naproxen and every other over the counter pain and migraine medicine. I don't know what to do to let me doctor know that I'm not going to become addicted to the Vicodin because I only take it when I feel a migraine coming on.
