It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
I have been having bad abdomen pain and fevers. Went to ER, all tests and ultrasound was normal. I used to take too much Aleve (naproxen) on purpose. Help?
Famously: Naproxen is well-known to do this, and about 1 in 25 people who start taking it on a regular basis get elevated liver enzymes. Perhaps it's time to look at taking a different nsaid; if the liver enzymes remain high, it would be wise to look for a different dangerous-if-untreated cause of the elevated 'zymes. ...Read more
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

NSAIDs: What type of bariatric surgery did you have? Gastric bypass? Lap band? Sleeve gastrectomy? The biggest concern is taking nsaids after a gastric bypass because it can cause you to form ulcers in your gastric pouch. If you do take nsaids, you should take a proton pump inhibitor like prevacid, (lansoprazole) prilosec, etc. ...Read more
No drug interactions between Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and naproxen. This drug may rarely cause serious (possibly fatal) liver disease. Nausea, vomiting, constipation, drowsiness lightheadedness and dizziness are common side effects.

What to do if I have an intermittent pain in my right subscapular area. It responds to naproxen sometimes. Liver & gs?
It depends what dose: An overdose is a relative term. Otc dose is less than half of the prescription dose. However, the dose is guided by other risks also e.g. Causing ulcer or gastritis or blood thinning. The drug could certainly cause renal failure even in mild overdose, but on the other hand some people handle it better than others. Sometimes it is too late when people figure out that they actually don't tolerate it. ...Read more
Can you take naproxen 500mg then take either tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin for break through pain. Are this meds ok to take with elevated liver functions?
Safer alternatives: In light of a history of liver dysfunction, acetominophen (tylenol) should be limited. Since you are already looking for something else to help beyond naproxen, it is time to ask your medical professional for better and safer options. Some alternative treatments or "stronger" medications will actually be safer over time with less chance for liver or kidney toxicity. ...Read more
My wife is currently having severe pinching pain in her lower right abdomen. She just took naproxen. She underwent dnc 2mths ago. Plz help, what 2 do?
Appendix: Appendicitis is a possible reason for her symptoms. If her pain is lower down, ovarian cysts or other female organ problems could be a source of her pain. Even though her d/c was two months ago, a rare infection is a possibility. Not knowing why she had the procedure, there is a possibility she may have a reoccurrence of the initial problem. I believe she needs an exam and possible tests ...Read more
I am currently on naproxen 500mg bid for headaches. Lately I have sharp pain on lt side of abdomen below ribs. Cause? What should I do?
Yes if no cirrhosis:
Aleve (naproxen) and Motrin (ibuprofen) are primarily excreted by the kidneys and not metabolized in the liver. If a patient with NAFLD is asymptomatic, has normal liver function (bilirubin) and no evidence of cirrhosis Aleve and Motrin can be taken without toxicity.
NSAIDS can occasionally elevate hepatic enzymes so it's
probably wise to check LFT's occasionally if using NSAIDS regularly. ...Read more
Taking NSAIDs: Generallyn it is pretty safe to take NSAIDs if you have reflux. I would take them with food. If you have known ulcer disease, it is wise to limit the NSAIDs or take them with a protective drug that reinforces the liking of the stomach. Avoid drinking a lot when you are being treated for ulcer disease. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more
Took 2 Aleve (naproxen) at 11am, and one at 10pm same day, when is the next safe time I can take, and is taking 2 at same time bad?
Forget the naproxen: The danger is in the 'magic mushrooms.' there is nothing magic about them, and the reality is that you have really no way to know what you are getting. If pure psilocybin/psilocin, there are still 'bad trips' from them. But they may really by pcp or amphetamine-based drugs like ecstasy, which can have very serious problems. At 46 you aren't a kid - high pulse with these drugs not good for heart. ...Read more
