30 mg difference: Aleve OTC is naproxen, 220 mg and anaprox is also naproxen, 250 mg.
Dr. Charles Turck
Pharmacology 17 years experience
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.

How many times per day should my baby poop?

Dr. Pamela Lindor
Pediatrics 32 years experience
It depends....: The frequency of bowel movements varies with age. In the first month, babies can have 4-7 stools per day, sometimes after every feed! at about one month, most infants will move their bowels about 1-4 times per day. By about 4 months, some breastfed babies will only need to have a bm once or twice a week! call your doctor if you are not sure.

Are congenital defects the same as birth defects?

Dr. Pam Yoder
Specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Yes: Here is a primer on the terms congenital refers to being present at birth. Anomalies, abnormalities, defects are often used interchangeably. Not all are genetic or familial. Malformation and deformation mean different things. Malformation is an anomaly due to abnormal formation of a structure. Deformation is a change in a structure due to forces like pressure, eg, in cases of low amniotic fluid.

Can the same blue light that treats acne also promote oral health?

This is not the same: You are referring to photodynamic therapy treatment for acne. We do not use this type of light therapy in dentistry. There are special lasers to treat oral conditions, but not the same.
A member asked:

I took 5 aleves (naproxen) and I am having severe nausea. Is this normal?

TOO MANY: 5 Aleve (naproxen) at the same time? That is too much. The package says take 1 pill up to 2 times a day. Never take more than the label says unless your doctor says it is ok. 5 alave can make you feel nausea. This is why they print how many to take safely on the labels.
