Naproxen Ingredients

What Is Naproxen (Aleve)?

Naproxen sodium is the generic ingredient in Aleve and several other brands of pain medication.

Naproxen is in a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which work by blocking the production of prostaglandins, substances in the body that play a role in pain and inflammation.

Naproxen has been used in the United States since 1980. It is available generically and under many brand names.

After 14 years as a prescription-only medication, in 1994 naproxen was approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.

Naproxen Sodium

Naproxen sodium is an internal analgesic available in over-the-counter (OTC) medicines that temporarily relieve minor aches and pains and reduce fever. It is also available in prescription medicines. Naproxen sodium is part of a group of pain relievers and fever reducers called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It may be written as naproxen sodium or naproxen, but it is the same active ingredient.

Naproxen sodium can be the only ingredient in oral pain relievers and fever reducers. It is also available in medicines that treat multiple symptoms of the common cold or symptoms associated with menstruation.

Naproxen Sodium Safe Use Tips

Naproxen sodium, like other NSAIDs, may cause a severe allergic reaction, especially in people who are allergic to aspirin. If you experience serious symptoms such as hives, facial swelling, asthma (wheezing), shock, skin reddening, rash, or blisters, stop using the medicine and seek immediate medical attention.

Severe stomach bleeding may occur. The chance is higher if you are age 60 or older; have had stomach ulcers or bleeding problems; or if you are taking a blood thinner (anticoagulant), steroid drug, or other medicines containing NSAIDs (e.g., aspirin, magnesium salicylate, naproxen sodium, ibuprofen, or ketoprofen).

Long-term continuous use may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Taking more medicine than the Drug Facts label says or for longer than the label says can cause health risks.
