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.

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?

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
