How much Naproxen is too much?
I have bad cramps and took two Naproxen sodium at 3 o’clock this morning. It is now 2 PM. It says on the bottle do not take more than 3 pills in 24 hours and no more than 2 pills in 12 hours. I am in severe pain and can’t wait 12 hours. It is 220 mg. Please help

You should take only one if it's that strong

Take another 2 , I have taken more than that for back pain. Make sure you eat something.

As long as you're at least 12 years of age the dosage is 220 mg orally every 8 to 12 hours while symptoms persist
-May take 440 mg orally once in the first hour if needed
Maximum dose: 440 mg (in any 8 to 12 hour period); 660 mg (in any 24 hour period)
so you can take one more now and then no more until at least 3am. You can safely take tylenol alongside naproxen.
