Is it normal for Aleve to make you feel a little buzzed?

I never take any sort of medication, not over the counter or prescription and I don't "self-medicate" if you know what I mean. But, last week I pulled a muscle in my leg and the soreness was getting to me and starting to cause me to favor it and actually make the situation worse, so I decided to take some Aleve today and while the discomfort is way less and I'm able to get better range of motion, it seems to be giving be a little bit of a buzz or something, I definitely feel like I'm "on something". is that normal?

No

I take Aleve on occasion and I never feel buzzed. I only take 1 tablet though, that is the prescribed amount. Some people take 2 thinking that it is like ibuprofen or Tylenol. Did you take 1 tablet or 2?

I use Aleve for migrains. Great stuff but sometimes after a bad headache I can feel a little euphoric once the Aleve kicks in (not that it's a bad thing) and the migrain clears. My Dr. doesn't like Aleve however, he thinks it's too strong for prolonged use.

i took it according to the directions 2 for the first dose then one 8 hours later, no more than 3 in 24 hours
maybe it's just a result of not being in pain.

I always take 2 and have never had problems. I like it a lot better than Tylenol or Advil (it's more effective). But Excedrin tends to make me sleepy..

It shouldn't make you buzzed, but since you said you never take meds, it may effect you more than most people.

I would take to the pharmisists or whoever at the drug store. Aleve is marketed as being four times stronger than advil and tylenol, etc. so I'm guessing if you never take anything else that it would effect you somehow.

It depends on what you mean by "buzzed" as well, since that is a subjective term.

But yeah, you should talk to a pharmisist.

You should talk to your pharmacist , he might be able to recommend something similar that won't raise your blood pressure.

If your blood pressure goes high enough to make you feel a buzz, that's very high and very bad. If I were you I wouldn't take any more of that without seeing a doctor first. Don't fool around with this. Please.

CARDIOVASCULAR RISK
NSAIDs may cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic events, myocardial infarction, and stroke, which can be fatal. This risk may increase with duration of use. Patients with cardiovascular disease or risk factors for cardiovascular disease may be at greater risk

I can relate to that euphoric feeling after the headache goes away - I've got chronic migraines. Fun stuff.

I actually use liquid Advil caplets. It almost always helps, and is a lot less powerful than Aleve.

One other thing to keep in mind is that unless you bought the bottle yourself and it's been sitting in your own medicine cabinet, then make sure it's Aleve that you took. I once got a Vicadin from a well-meaning friend who thought he was giving me prescription strength ibuprofin. Lesson learned. There was definitely a buzz there.

Sometimes caffeine can interact with OTC painkillers to create a mild buzz ... dunno if that pertains to you, just a thought.

NSAIDs are NOT painkillers... they are anti-inflamatories... NSAIDs are not opiates... If you are euphoric afterwards, then there is a potential issue. Prolonged usage of NSAIDs can cause liver damage and death. Prolonged usage of ANY medication can cause damage and death...

Caffine in or with medications cause the heartrate and blood pressure to increase thereby speeding up the disperssion of the drug. Adding caffine to a drug concoction with caffine or other stimulents can cause greavous harm, upto and including death.

I would consult with a physician, not a pharmacist, regarding apparent side effects of a drug. But, that's me. I am not a doctor, I just play one on TV... *wink*... I am ready for my mella-dramatic close-up now Mr. Director!!
