Rarely

Aleve

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Is it possible that aleve increase liver enzymes?

Famously

Aleve
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.

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

Possible

Liver
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.

I am obese had baristruc surgery. Just found out I have a slightly large heart, and ^ liver enzymes. I hurt my knee can I take an aleve w/said issues?

NSAIDs

Skd239297sdc
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, Prilosec, etc.

What are the chances of getting liver or kidney failure from naproxen overdose?

It depends what dose

Blood_type
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

Is taking Naproxen 500 2 x plus 10/325 x 5 goingto cause liver problems? Thank you.

Not likely

Aleve
No drug interactions between norco and naproxen. This drug may rarely cause serious (possibly fatal) liver disease. Nausea, vomiting, constipation, drowsiness lightheadedness and dizziness are common side effects. Rec.: for more information discuss with your prescribing physician.

Dr. Ajay Acharya answered:

Is it true that when you break a bone is better to take Naproxen because Acetaminophen causes liver damage and Ibuprofen prevents bone growth?

No

Liver
Acetaamenophen causes liver damage., naproxen is safer more effective. Naproxen ,Ibuprofen both belong to NSAID will have simmilar effect. Bone growth effect...... not realy.

can you take naproxen 500mg then take either tylenol or aspirin for break through pain. are this meds ok to take with elevated liver functions?

Safer alternatives

Bile
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.
