No interaction: Aleve (naproxen) does not alter the effects of drinking.

Alcohol and Aleve (naproxen): Likely tolerated after waiting 8 hours and with modest social intake (as recommended anyway). Proceed with caution. Keep in mind that Aleve (naproxen) should always be taken with food. Note: Alcohol and Aleve (naproxen) can both increase gastritis symptoms (acidic irritation of the stomach lining). If you wait 8 hours, this should be fine.
