Hi, I am a bit 18 year girl. I have rheumatoid arthritis for a year. Right now I am taking torimac 90 as pain killer along with Saaz 500, folitrax 10 three times a week, folvite 5 mg two times a week, duloxee 20 two times a day. From past 15 days I am experiencing extreme pain in my joints. I am unable to meet my doctor. Could you tell me whether I can use naproxen in place of my current painkiller to control my pain?

Naproxen has more side effects than etoricoxib which you are taking. You can take naproxen for pain relief _Give a gap of 2vhours between other medications Always take it after food Try to avoid on the days you are taking methotrexate
