    Went to refill prescription chemist says there is a national shortage of naproxen and they don’t have any
    What can i take instead they suggested ibuprofen but don’t think they have the same effect and may trigger my asthma which naproxen dont



    Hi Lorna, same boat as you, my pharmacy told me they run out of 500mg so i asked if they had 250’s instead and just doubled up. I cannot take ibuprofen as i’m chronic asthmatic also it does nothing for me. personally I think its a load of rubbish its the pharmarcy companies making a shortage, so they can up their prices to GP surgeries ect. Take care and best wishes. Lee
