I have 3 degenerative discs in my Lumbar spine. the daily pain has gotten so great that it affects nearly every activity of the day. I found Aleve really does help take the edge off and allow more normal functioning. I used to think Aleve didn't work, however i never gave it enough time (for me). For short term (hours) I prefer something else, but for longer term management I like this stuff. ... Show Full Comment

10 minutes after taking Aleve for knee pain, I broke outin hives, skin became red, hands and feet became severely itchy, and throat started swelling. I took three Benadryl, but that had no effect.

The last thing to remain was ... Show Full Comment

Found its so much easier to take one of this per day. As opposed to taking more then one/two per day every/any other OTC NSAID out there. Now, just wish that it comes in PM form as well. Because for the time being I'm taking something else for that. In which its one per night. As opposed to taking one to two per night.

I normally check the side effects but this time I chose not to. Within 10 minutes I developed very violent case of Hive and skin rash. I checked the side effect of the Aleve and I read exactly this,"A very serious allergic react ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have two lower herniated discs and the pain has gradually gotten to the point I can't function without moderate to severe pain - and I'm only 36. Advil usually works for other issues but no luck with the back. Chiropracter said try aleve. One pill per day didnt work, he said try two in morning and two at nite for a week, that's the same as if he would have given me a prescription. Su ... Show Full Comment
