Are we allowed to take Alleve? Does anyone know, it has Naproxen in it. I heard it is good for joint pain.  Thanks.

Alleve is an NSAID, like Advil, and can tear up your stomach.  Not recommended for Crohn's patients.

Hi Jenn-
I have horrible joint pain from remicade and I have been taking tylenol arthritis. It works almost as well as my 800mg Ibuprofin that we are not supposed to be taking.....I know we are allowed to take tylenol but I am not sure about alleve.
36 year old female. Dx'd and undx'd a few times. Was just redx'd again 04/2007.
History of rectal abscesses and fistulas (28 surgeries including abscess I & D, exploratory surgeries, 2 C-ton drains and 1 fistula plug) Count does not include self bursting abscesses.
1st Remicade infusion 6/5/07.  Lots of joint pain, and a new fistula since the 2nd infusion 6/19.
Praying I'll get better soon so we can have a baby.
Ginger :)

If it makes you feel any better, I tried Alleve once, before I was diagnosed, and it did zip-all for me.

I can take Advil without any problem, but when I tried Aleve, I had the worst stomach pain and heartburn. It lasted for days!!! I think it just depends on the person. I can't take Tylenol because my liver is sensative to it.

Dx in 1984 with Crohn's Disease.  In 1988 my terminal Ileum was removed due to inflamation that caused it to rupture.  The disease seems under control, but I deal with scar tissue and adhesions which cause constant pain.

I think the main issue with NSAIDs is that intestinal bleeding is a possible side effect. For us crohnies with our erosions, ulcers, fissures and fistulas is won't take much to start bleeding. A friend of mine with an ulcer that he didn't know about almost died from intestinal bleeding as a result of taking NSAIDs for 2 weeks.

Alleve is just the brand name OTC naproxen. Like how tylenol is acetaminophen and motrin is ibuprofen. Before I was dx with Crohn's I tried it [alleve] a couple times for menstrual cramps and it did nothing, and since you can only take it every 12 hours, I was suffering the whole day and afraid to take anything else on top of it!
Finally Dx- April 13 2007 (age 26) ilio-crohn's-colitis. Surgeries:appendectomy, cholecystectomy, tonsillectomy, pinidal cyst removed,emergency abdominal surgery for hemorrhaging ovary from burst ovarian cyst, LEEPcervix, emergency abdominal surgery for grapefruit sized ovarian cyst removal, D and C of uterus, lumpectomy of breast.
MEDS: remicade, prednisone, Asacol TID, protonix, metformin, buspar, trazodone, multi V, B complex, flaxseed. Vegetarian, leaning towards vegan. no nuts, seeds, or wheat.
Many allergies. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, anxiety, depression, ITP
