30 mg difference: Aleve OTC is naproxen, 220 mg and anaprox is also naproxen, 250 mg.

See below: One tablet (220mg of naproxen sodium) of Aleve contains 200 mg of naproxen which is the active ingredient. An Anaprox tablet (275 mg naproxen sodium) contains 250 mg of naproxen, therefore 1 tablet of Anaprox is equivalent to 1 &¼ (1.25) tablets of Aleve.

Naproxen sodium: Aleve is a consumer brand of generic naproxen sodium while Anaprox is a prescription brand of generic naproxen sodium. Anaprox 275mg of naproxen sodium is equivalent to 250mg naproxen while Aleve 220mg of naproxen sodium is equivalent to 200mg naproxen. You won't find an exact match unless you count 5 Aleve or 4 Anaprox but that's way too much to take at once.
