03 Apr 2014 Aleve does wonders for pain. In my case it truly helps back pain and tendonitis in my left ankle on my peroneal tendon. The side effect I experience is a moderate to strong loss of libido. Have been on Aleve for 10 days and I have little urge and even less ability to perform even while on an occasional dose of Viagra. About 1 week after stopping Aleve, libido returns but needs to build up to return to normal.

18 Mar 2012 I do like the Aleve liquid gels better than the regular Aleve. However, both seem to always work quickly and effectively when pain does arise anywhere within my body.

19 Jan 2012 Aleve (or generic naproxen) works very and very fast well at relieving aches and pains. DO NOT TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH! you will have stomach aches and loose stools if you do.

10 Jan 2012 Aleve worked wonders for my chronic foot pain, so I'm very disappointed that I started having adverse reactions. The anxiety and depression it caused me aren't fun, though.

06 Jan 2012 Works well for aches/pain especially after surgery. As good as a prescription pain med for me.
