I used Aleve for 3 days prior to hemmorhaging. I lost 4 units of blood... Doc said that the Aleve could have contributed. (I am a bleeder anyway.) I don't touch the stuff either. It works, that I can say. But, it's not worth the risk. Since Tylenol doesn't help, I use Vicodin when the pain gets in the way of life.
