Aleve does not work for me, but unexpectedly Benedryl & similar allergy meds help greatly to reduce my lower back pain! I have tight glut, piriformis & hamstring muscles on left side.

Comment:
I have taken this drug at different times for different types of pain. I can't take ibuprofen anymore because it is very hard on my stomach. Tylenol type pain relievers don't help me much so I have tried the naproxen. It is pretty effective at relieving moderate pain and reducing more heavy pain.
