    Is naproxen a narcotic? Is it anything like lortabs, or other opiates?

    No, it isn't a narcotic. It's a non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug like acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Motrin). Found in less than 10 seconds on Wikipedia.

    Naproxen is garbage in terms of recreational value. Its an anti-inflammatory. Lortab for the win!

    Naproxen = Aleve = only good if You is psychologically addicted to taking "painkiller" pills.
    (Although the relatively potent placebo effect I got from them at that point in his life should be of particular note.)

    when motrin first became popular a friend was telling me him and his buddys used to eat them while they were drinking and all thought they were getting high until they discovered its just motrin.

    It is rather comical how it never fails,almost every once in awhile someone comes on asking about the recreational potential of naproxen.One would think they could find this answer quick and simple with google.

    everytime a doctor tries to give me that poison i tell him that I object to his methods of treatment. naproxen is linked as having a causal or probable causal relationship with upwards of 120 renal, hepatic, and digestive disorders. NEVER CONSUME NAPROXEN.

    It's just a NSAID and has absolutely no recreational value.
