Possible naproxen allergy? Increased bp, heart rate, intense red itch tops of feet, arms, torso. Went to dr, ekg&bp normal by arrival. Didn't link Aleve use until today, used in frequently in past.
Quite possibly: The reaction you describe certainly sounds like an allergic reaction to something you ingested , possibly the aleve (naproxen). Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) are fairly allergenic, and you develop an allergy to something at any point. So if the timeline to your symptoms fits with aleve (naproxen) ingestion, i would be highly suspicious. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for acute relief of current symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What are the: symptoms? It could be rather an adverse drug reaction to aspirin and not a true allergy.

My face has been hurting a lot for a while. i heard it could be an allergy to aleve, should i quit? didnt take any today, im taking benadryl (diphenhydramine) for aller
I have chills and slight nausea. What medicine should I take- Aleve for the bad fever or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the allergy?
Perhaps both: You could take both but you didn't mention any specific allergy symptoms. Nausea could easily be a symptom of infection. And chills are not a symptom of allergy. In that case Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will only make you sleepy. It's not a very good medication for nausea. Take your Ibuprofen and go to bed. ...Read more
