It doesn't do squat for me though. I'll stick with ibuprofen.
Brand-name is Alleve, right?
I didn't know it's an anti-inflammatory....
Aleve is the brand name. I have been taking a lot of ibuprofen over the years and developed acid-reflux as a result. So now I take medicine for that and suffer the aches and pains. Maybe I'll try Aleve and see if it helps. Thanks Walter!
I was on Naproxin for a bit....I couldn't understand why suddenly it felt as though I had a cup of lava in my gut.
yeah, alleve is a half-dose of Naproxin, just like the drug they give people to stop smoking, Zyban, is a half dose of Wellbutrin.
DD, That's why they say Alleve lasts all day. It's actually takes time to build up in your system enough to do any good....you might feel some relief of an inflamed muscle within the day, but it'll take a day or 2 more to build up.
