Aleve Cold Medication
I have been having headaches for the past 2-3 months everyday with nothing making them go away except for me going to sleep. I have tried medications but the only over the counter one I have found that helps is aleve although all it does is make it lessen
Probably: If you have a simple UTI and are on short term antibiotics, there should not be any problems. Since some antibiotics can cause stomach upset- as can alleve- I would consider separating them and especially take the alleve after a meal. ...Read more
Number of factors: Your diagnosis, clinical individual situation, level of pain or inflammation, individual risk factors, and the past experience with NSAIDs medications. For example for low back pain Advil is recommended. For TMJ inflammation Aleve (naproxen) is better. Talk to your doctor about whether you can take NSAIDs daily. ...Read more

Only OTC medication I have found to help pain of Achilles tendonitis is aleve (naproxen). However, I have to take 600 mg. Is that safe on a regular basis?
Yes for short period:
Of time, like 4-7 days or so. All nsaids are not recommended for anyone with kidney problems. Normal dose of aleve (naproxen) is 220 or 250 mg twice a day. For short periods of time up to 1000 mg maybe used.
I would recommend pt for stretching and splint.
If no improvement after 6 weeks, then maybe a MRI might be needed to evaluate the status of the achilles tendon. ...Read more

Is Aleve (naproxen) or ibuprofen safer to take if you have high blood pressure and you are on blood pressure medication?
Both affect BP: All NSAID's, including ibuprofen and naproxen, have the potential to increase blood pressure (BP). In most people the change is small but, on occasion, a significant elevation of BP may occur. Consider monitoring your BP (call your MD staff so they can assist you in arranging for you to drop in randomly for 3-6 BP checks over the next several weeks) to see if BP is affected while on a NSAID. ...Read more

Let your doctor know: And see what they say and have it recorded in your chart. Usually it's safe, But your doctor knows your history, other medications, medical conditions, things that would make a better decision if s/he knew about it first to then advise you on it now. ...Read more
As far as NSAIDs?: Naproxen in a recent danish study proved safer for the heart than all other non steroidal ant-inflammatory drugs, even compared to placebo. It will replace some of my other go to drugs. But there are caveats. It can irritate the stomach. It does negate aspirins cardio-protection. It can cause a decrement in renal function in some patients! ...Read more

I took Aleve d a few hours ago can I take tylenol (acetaminophen) cold multi symptom now that I'm going to bed?
I took 2 capfulls of NiteTime Cold and Flue and I tool 4 Aleve (naproxen) all under an hour... Will I be okay?
Too much: That is a lot of Aleve to take within one hour. I think you'll be all right but watch for stomach irritation and drink adequate fluids over the next eight hours. Call your physician if abdominal pain, vomiting, or black stools occur and, of course, don't take any more Aleve or cold preparations. Mild Tylenol (acetaminophen) use should be ok if needed. Consult your physician for more advice if you don't feel better. ...Read more
