Aleve Blood Thinner
Agents which slow ;/or break down blood clot formation in up to 3 different ways (they do not decrease blood viscosity; thickness.) (1) some inhibit platelet function (e.g. Aspirin, clopidogrel, etc.). (2) others interfere with some of the clot forming proteins (warfarin, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, etc.), (3) others stimulate the blood clot destruction ...Read more
About 24 hours: Naproxen is the brand name for naprosyn a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. It reversibly inactivates new platlets for about 24 hours. This means the blood is "thinned" or less likely to clot during that 24 hours. Aspirin alternatively irreversibly inactivates platlets so they are less sticky for about 7 days. In both cases these are generalizations that differ person to person. ...Read more
I feel like Adderall is making my circulation bad, will taking naproxen make the blood thinner and easier to flow?

A geriatric patient who has had open heart surgery years ago and recently had a stroke and is on blood thinners, can he take aleve?
I will avoid: Nsaid's like Naproxen in geriatric patients specially if they are in blood thinners. 50 millions american have gastritic/ulcer disease induced by nsaid's and around 3% of those will bleed from the disease. Also nsaid's are associated with stroke and heart attacks. Use tylenol without using more than 3, 000 mg a day. Consult your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hello is it normal to have blood in your stool when you're taking new medicines such as Aleve or mixing prescribed medicine with aleve?
NOT GOOD, stop Aleve: Never, unless with a doctor's expressed advice, mix medicines. Aleve is an effective inhibitor of platelet function so it can make you bleed. Aleve can cause ulcers (anywhere in the GI tract), which can then bleed. Stop the aleve at once, and seek medical attention now before a little bleed turns into a life-threatening one. ...Read more
Anticoagulants are any of a variety of drugs which decrease the body's ability to make or sustain blood clots. They fall, generally, into two categories. Drugs like Aspirin and clopidogrel (plavix) prevent platelets from forming the initial stages of a clot. Drugs like warfarin (coumadin) and dabigatran (pradaxa) block the later process ...Read more
