Constipated due to taking Aleve what to do?

Constipation.: Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day). Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active with regular exercise. There are a number of over the counter laxatives that can be taken orally to help pass retained fecal matter. ...Read more

Can aleve pm cause diffuse large b-cell lymphoma?

No: We can only guess what causes diffuse large b-cell lymphoma, but we know there are at least 3 genetic subtypes. See: http://www.bloodjournal.org/content/105/5/1851 This implies gene mutations are very important in this disease, as in most (if not all) blood borne malignancies. As far as anyone knows, Aleve PM (or any drug like it ) does not cause genetic mutation or clearly increase cancer risk. ...Read more

Is there proof that Aleve or other naisd's can cause liver damage?

Is there proof that Aleve or other naisd's can cause liver damage?

Possible: As you imply, there is controversy over how serious the role of nsaisd and liver damage really is. The best reference I have seen is world j gastroenterol 2010 december 7; 16(45) 5651-5661. While there is some risk with all nsaids, discontinuation usually reverses problem. The presence of jaundice is a serious risk factor for liver failure. Sulindac and nimesulide have both been linked hi risk. ...Read more

I take between 3 and 9 Aleve per day. Prior to this I was taking naproxin for 10 - 12 years. I am now spilling ptotein. Could this be the cause?

May be too much: Your screen name suggests some advanced aged. Most people 65 pr older should not take nsaids at all. Long term higher dose nsaidshave been associated with hypertension. Higher blood pressure can be hurting your kidneys. Talk to you gp about something other than anti-inflammatoriez for your condition. ...Read more

After being diagnosed with acid reflux caused by taking Aleve for 10 days, will this resolve after taking Prilosec or zantac?

See details: The Naproxen does not cause acid reflux as its actually can cause major esophageal irritation and even esophageal ulcers. Stopping all nsaids is an essential step. The symptom should resolve over time usually with priolosec. Zantac is less effective. ...Read more
