Naproxen and Alcohol
What is Naproxen?
Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It blocks the body’s production of prostaglandin which causes inflammation. The medication comes in tablet or liquid form that is normally taken two or three times a day. It’s best to avoid combining Naproxen and alcohol as serious side effects are possible.
Common proprietary names for Naproxen include Aleve, EC-Naprosyn, Flanax, Midol, Naprelan, Naprosyn, Anaprox-DS, Pamprin, and Naproxen Sodium.
Individuals who are allergic to aspirin, ibuprofen, or celecoxib may have allergic reactions to Naproxen as well. The drug is not recommended during pregnancy, especially in the third trimester, as there may be a link between Naproxen and some birth defects or miscarriage. Also, it is not recommended during breastfeeding.
