The answer is somewhat dependent upon your level of renal function. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may affect renal prostaglandins and thereby may reduce renal perfusion. If your creatinine clearance is 50 ml/min or higher then you should be able to tolerate up to 1000 mg of naproxen daily over a short term of therapy. If you do not know the stage or state of your renal nephropathy then I would avoid NSAIDs until you discuss this with your physician. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and in all things may God bless.

I just went to the doc the other day and he told me to take 2 in the morning and 2 at night. Even though the bottle says something else, the doc said it was fine.
