About 24 hours: Naproxen is the brand name for naprosyn (naproxen) 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 (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is making my circulation bad, will taking naproxen make the blood thinner and easier to flow?
Amphetamines: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is an Amphetamine, which is related to Adrenalin in it's actions. Adrenalin is the Fight or Flight hormone. Adrenalin speeds up the heart, raises blood pressure, dilates the pupils, increases sweating and breathing rates. Amphetamines do the same thing. Many adults are mistakenly diagnosed and prescribed stimulants like Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine), which have many potentially dangerous side effects. ...Read more
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 (naproxen)?
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 (acetaminophen) without using more than 3, 000 mg a day. Consult your doctor. ...Read more

I took aleve (naproxen) the night before I got blood work done and I had my creatinine checked. It came out to. 99. Could the aleve (naproxen) have messed up my results? Could it have made it lower than it actually is?
Hello is it normal to have blood in your stool when you're taking new medicines such as Aleve (naproxen) or mixing prescribed medicine with aleve (naproxen)?
NOT GOOD, stop Aleve (naproxen): Never, unless with a doctor's expressed advice, mix medicines. Aleve (naproxen) is an effective inhibitor of platelet function so it can make you bleed. Aleve (naproxen) can cause ulcers (anywhere in the GI tract), which can then bleed. Stop the Aleve (naproxen) at once, and seek medical attention now before a little bleed turns into a life-threatening one. ...Read more

They don't literally make the blood thinner, just that blood clots more slowly. They should be minimized, taken with meals, and ask doc about any special bleeding risks. ...Read more
