Increased risk: of birth defects and miscarriage in the last trimester when patients have taken Aleve (naproxen).

Dec 2011 i overdosed on 17 Aleve (naproxen) pills. I got pregnant in july 2012 and i got hydronephrosis in my left kidney. Symptoms were gross hematuria on august 2012. Could the pills have caused this?
No: Hydronephrosis is common during pregnancy, more on the right than left. Could also be due to a kidney stone if there is associated pain. If you have continued to take aleve (naproxen) or another pain medication, you could have bleeding from your kidney from that. Sometimes a clot in the ureter tube could cause pain and hydronephrosis as well. ...Read more

I am 16 weeks pregnant and have a terrible cold. I took two doses of sudafed without realizing the particular kind had naproxen. Is this ok?
Should be fine: While i wouldn't recommend you continue taking this name brand of pseudophed, the issue with Naproxen and nsaids is more in the third trimester. You are just barely into the second trimester, so its very unlikely the limited dose you took would cause any harm. Not impossible, just very unlikely. ...Read more

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?
B6 toxicity is well recognized:
There are a few questions that need to be asked in this case. Exactly how much B6 was the patient taking? According to recommended standards 200mg daily is the limit. Toxicity is thought to occur at levels of 1000mg. daily and above though much lower have been reported on rare occasions(100-300mg). Secondly, what exactly was the quality of her pain? Described symptoms of neural toxicity involves sensory neuropathy described mainly as burning dysesthesias and numbness. The case talks about a RADICULOPATHY. That is typically not the same type of pain as we find in chemical toxicities. Pain in the feet could very well be dysesthesias but the history could be a bit more specific there in order to attach more positive points for B6 sequelae.
