Which is better for arthritis pain relief, Aleve (naproxen) or Advil?

Which is better for arthritis pain relief, Aleve (naproxen) or Advil?

Both are good: Both Aleve (naproxen) and Advil (ibuprofen) are anti-inflammatory medications and either can be used to treat arthritis pain. Aleve only needs to be taken 2 times per day (every 12 hours) where as Advil can be taken 3 times per day (every 8 hours). Do not take them both together but try them both separately and see which is more effective for you. ...Read more

What is better for arthritis inflammation and pain?I have been taking 3250 mg of Bufferin(aspirin) and Dr. suggested Aleve (naproxen) 2 at night 2 at morning?

See answer: I am hoping you meant to place the # 325mg NOT 3250! The latter would be way too high. I would take your doctors advice as s/he is caring for you and can best deliver advice to you situation. Generally speaking aleve (naproxen) is a good medication, but as stated, this needs to be addressed with your treating Doctor. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Enter data entry for 40 hrs week, concerned may be arthritis in my middle finger I am on a computer everyday and use the 10key the majority of my day. Recently i've been concerned about middle finger;since with Aleve and motrin and ice and heat packs it i

First: : First: rest assured that the idea that computers can harm your hands is overstated and likely a myth. The symptoms are nonspecific and it's not clear what you mean by "crack". There are some common finger conditions that your primary care doctor or a hand surgeon could check you for, and the vast, vast majority are benign. Remember, pain makes us prepare for the worst because it was an evolutionary advantage to have such a "pain alarm", but just like the smoke alarm in the kitchen, most pain alarms are false alarms. You're going to be able to rely on your hands! ...Read more

Is it normal for doc to give Aleve (naproxen) for TMJ arthritis pain that's severe? My doc refused stronger mess even though i told him nsaids don't help.

Is it normal for doc to give Aleve (naproxen) for TMJ arthritis pain that's severe? My doc refused stronger mess even though i told him nsaids don't help.

Get to the source: Meds often mask the true source of the problem or the trigger points that are causing your pain. Many of my new patients come into my office already heavily medicated (anti-depressants, pain meds, anti-anxiety, muscle relaxers;) with no real solution to solving their constant pain problems. You should have a thorough exam and evaluation. ...Read more

Can taking Aleve daily over a long period of time (years) cause sharp and gnawing pain under my left rib cage? Had blood tests recently, doctor said some level was higher due to my taking Aleve (which he prescribed for my arthritis).  Should i stop taking

Ask your doctor: Aleve (naproxen) can cause a number of problems that can show up as pain under the left rib cage. These include peptic ulcer and coronary artery problems. Don't know which blood levels would be affected, but you really should press your doctor for an explanation of your symptoms and of the abnormal blood test. ...Read more

 early rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. has me taking 2 Aleve (naproxen) twice a day no other drugs yet. Is it safe to get flu shot without making joints ache more!

Flu shot safe: The flu shot is safe and MUCH safer than not being protected against the flu. Hope you are seeing a Rheumatologist because if you really have Rheumatoid Arthritis, even if early you need more than Aleve (naproxen) twice a day. If you are not seeing a Rheumtologist, please see one. ...Read more
