Can You Take 2 Naproxen 500mg Tablets At One Time For Pain?

I do not take this drug on a regular basis but my back is killing me. Is it safe to take more than one?

Answer

The maximum recommended dose of naproxen is 500mg at one time, with no more than 1500 mg to be taken in a 24 hr. period. I wouldn't recommend taking more than that without asking your doctor.
