On December 20, 2004 the FDA announced that the National Institutes of Health was immediately halting a study involving Naproxen, commonly used in the brand name over-the-counter pain medication Aleve. The Study revealed that Aleve, Naproxen, and other similar non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs increased the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Aleve lawyers who are investigating Aleve lawsuits, believe that patients taking Aleve may increase their risk of Naproxen and Aleve related heart attacks and strokes by up to 50%. To avoid a serious injury from using Aleve, the FDA suggests that patients not exceed the recommended daily dosage of Aleve, and should not take the product for more than 10 days.

Naproxen and Aleve are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain associated with arthritis, gout, and other joint disorders. Naproxen is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals.

In a study presented to the American College of Gastroenterology, researchers with the Baylor College of Medicine revealed that patients who take NSAIDs, such as Naproxen, and the osteoporosis drug Alendronate have a higher risk of developing stomach ulcers. See your doctor if you are concerned about the safety of these drugs.

If you have experienced serious side effects after taking Naproxen, Aleve or Alendronate, it may be important to contact an Aleve attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
