I went to our doctors this week as my arthritis seemed worse.
(Its in my hip) but I now feel it all down my leg and in fingers and wrist. I saw practice nurse. She gave me Naproxen to take one, to be taken 2 or 3 times a day and Lansoprazole once a day first thing an hour before food. She explained that these were to stop the Naproxen damaging my stomach and kidneys. But I may still get stomach aches. She sent me for a blood test to check my kidneys. When I got the prescription and saw the size of the Lansoprazole tablets I thought I am not sure I can even swallow them they are huge. It says you must swallow whole. Most people I know with arthritis get co-codamol and are reasonably happy with them. Can you give me more information about these please. Thank you Linda
