Aleve – is a drug used to get rid of pain symptoms of mild to moderate intensity. The drug also relieves fever and mildly eliminates inflammation. It is possible to buy Aleve without prescription in several countries.
Aleve provides an anesthetic or analgesic effect by means of active ingredient Naproxen. This is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Analgesic effect is to suppress activity of enzymes that cause pain.
You need to buy Aleve without prescription if:
- pain following various bruises and sprains is accompanied with inflammatory reactions on the skin;
- you have a fever because of common cold;
- diseases of the musculoskeletal system (arthritis, rheumatism, osteochondrosis) cause severe pain.
It should be noted that Aleve is effective only in treatment of pain symptoms, inflammation, and elevated temperature. This analgesic does not affect course and progression of comorbidities.
To relieve pain, inflammation and elevated temperature, Aleve pills, liquid gels or gelcaps containing 220 mg of Naproxen are used. The dosage is 220-440 mg of Naproxen per day. To remove pain symptoms, Aleve can be used in children over 12 years old.
Benefits that you will get if you buy Aleve without prescription:
- speed and duration of analgesic effect – Aleve starts acting 15 minutes after administration, and its action lasts up to 12 hours;
- relief of increased temperature and inflammation in just two intakes per day;
- gentle and effective relief from pain symptoms of various origin.
Aleve is not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Active ingredient Naproxen crosses the placenta and breast milk and may harm the baby.
Do not confuse Aleve with other NSAID, such as Motrin, Advil or NyQuil. These drugs have an analgesic effect by means of other active ingredients: Motrin and Advil eliminate pain symptoms by means of Ibuprofen.
Just as Aleve, one can buy Ibuprofen without prescription. By providing an analgesic effect, both agents are almost identical. But Naproxen more quickly reaches a peak concentration and significantly longer is excreted from the body. This means that analgesic effect of Naproxen also lasts longer.
NyQuil – is a combined drug used for treatment of common cold. Unlike to Aleve, NyQuil does not only reduce fever and relieve pain in the throat, but also eliminates cough.
NyQuil contains three active ingredients: analgesic Acetaminophen, antitussive means Dextromethorphan and antihistamine drug Doxylamine succinate. NyQuil really eliminates the main symptoms of common cold, but its side effects are much stronger than that of Aleve.
Clinical studies have confirmed efficacy and safety of Aleve comparing to opioid analgesics, such as Tramadol. There are no significant differences between Aleve and Tramadol in speed of action and pain relief. However, Aleve has much fewer side effects.
Elderly are more often subject to such diseases as rheumatism, osteochondrosis and arthritis. Therefore, it is important influence of the drug on the cardiovascular system when prescribing NSAID to elderly.
Use of Aleve almost does not cause problems with the cardiovascular system. Aleve has the highest cardiovascular safety among other NSAIDs.
However, if you have heart problems, avoid using Aleve with anticoagulants that thin the blood. Use of analgesic increases effect of such anticoagulants as Pradaxa and Warfarin. Under the influence of Aleve, a blood thinner increases a risk of bleeding in the brain.
When observing all recommendations for use, Aleve very rarely causes side effects. Analgesic is not toxic and does not violate function of the gastrointestinal, respiratory and nervous systems. Application of Aleve does not affect an ability to drive a car and compatible with moderate alcohol consumption.
