What make Naproxen Alieve dangerous

What is Naproxen aleve used for?

The popular over-the-counter anti inflamitory drug is used to treat a variety of ailments, including headaches, menstrual cramps, arthritis and gout. Why was Naproxen Recalled (or why should it) ?

Naproxen is the latest drug to be added to the list of questionable medicines.

The naproxen warnings further confused both doctors and patients alike. A study showed that patients taking Aleve (naproxen) were found to have about a 50 % greater chance of suffering strokes or heart attacks than those taking a placebo.

FDA officials did urge patients taking naproxen to following instructions carefully and avoid using the drug for more than 10 days. With advice like this is it realy a shock people don’t trust the FDA

    I recently tried the aleve product and by the third day I had every side effect mentioned in the literature and then some. I think it should be taken off the market. Since I am pretty sure that will not happen, I strongly recommend the side effects should be featured boldly on the label. I went through a week of severe stomach pain, rash, upset stomach, fever, shortness of breath, etc. I did not see anything on the package that mentioned likelyhood of heart attack/stroke. Since I have already suffered a heart attach, this was of great interest to me. I would never have tried this product if I had known this little gem of information. Needless to say, I was and am extremely angry about the lack of information on the label.

    I am not one to take pills or medication unless I absolutely have to. The only ‘medicine’ I take every day is a baby aspirin that my doctor suggested I take.

    One morning (about 6 months ago) I woke up and my right knee felt like it had a red hot iron sticking in it. When I got out of bed it was really hard to walk. The pain was about a 7 on a scale of 10.

    My wife has a number of medications she takes for various reasons and one was Aleve Gel capsules. I read the instructions and it said to take 2 the first time and 1 thereafter. It has caveats as to amount and time.

    Reluctantly, I took 2 capsules. In six hours I took 1 Aleve and before going to be, I took 1 more. All day my knee literally throbbed and the pain was bad.

    I went to sleep (finally) and the following morning, got up to a knee that just had a slight ache. I took 1 more Aleve and that was it. I haven’t taken anything since and my knee is fine.

    I don’t know what caused that problem since I hadn’t injured it in any way. All I know is, it had to be the Aleve that removed the pain.

    I have just got out of the hospital with a preforated ulcer in my tummy. The surgeion told me to not take tylenol, ibuphrophen, or alieve.

    Tylenol should not affect the stomach. (It’s only bad for the liver if taken in excess or preexisting liver problems). Now Naxproxen will burn a hole in your stomach!

    I like Naproxen, though I only take it a couple of times a month
    and then only one pill every six hours, I rarely have to take another one, as it usually takes care of my back pain. I am a person
    who has a very high pain threshold so I don’t believe in taking
    anything unless the pain level is fairly bad. I have never had
    a reaction or side effect from it.
