Naproxen (Anti Inflammatory) in conjunction with Epclusa?
Permalink  
 


Thanks.

I was initially phoned by a company associated with a pharmacy that fulfilled the Epclusa prescription and was told this by some young girl.
I phoned them back this morning and after much frustration trying to get a straight answer, just took some Naproxen.

It seems the *nurse* there didnt know either and suggested I call another pharmacy although none of them are prescribing this drug.
I looked around the web and it clearly states the two are safe together.
The initial girl that called me must have got it wrong and i left it at that.

You may ask your prescribing doc as well. I was allowed to take it as needed on harvoni.

Well, looking all over the web it appears that there isn't an interaction with Naproxen/Epclusa but seeing as i only use Naproxen and occasionally Tums, I seem to recall being told by the pharmacist I could not use either.
The Tums I am not questioning, nor need.

Deep muscle pain - not a side effect of treatment but likely a result of spending too much time on the computer
Could have started using it 3-4 nights ago as it has been waking me up but assumed right away I could not.

Will phone the pharmacy in the morning and double check but had hoped someone might have been able to confirm or deny shortly after I posted, so I might have taken some right away but will hold off one more night, until confirmed either way.

Hi. Can anyone confirm or deny please, if Naproxen, an anti inflammatory medicine is not allowed while using Epclusa?

 

I have looked over all of my papers and do not see it listed but seem to remember someone saying I could not use it while on treatment?

I might be wrong but have that stuck in my head. Really need it for a deep muscle pull thats waking me up at night, so finally double checking whether it is ok or not to use.

 

 

Thanks
