    Yes, Naproxen, like other NSAIDS, thins the blood stream.

    Yes, Naproxen thins the blood. Many of the other over the counter pain medications are NSAIDs much like Naproxen and has a similar blood thinning effect.

    Naproxen interferes with platelet function, thus increases bleeding time or it increases your chances to have prolonged bleeding.
