Alleve is a life saver for me. Without Alleve, there are many normal daily activities that I simply would not abe able to do. For example, when I type a great deal my knuckles flare up and get swollen. There are times that I would have to spend a day recovering from long typing spells. Alleve keeps the swelling down. On some days, I can type a great deal and experience no inflammation thanks to Alleve. It is a terrific over the counter anti-inflammatory medicine.
I did notice that when I take Alleve that I was getting a small amount of heartburn. Now, I make certain that I take the medicine with a little bit of milk and a soda cracker. This seems to keep me from having any heartburn from the Alleve.
Alleve has done remarkedbly well at reducing the swelling in my hands. I also have problems with other joints that swell. The Alleve seems to target those as well.
I am able to follow the regular dosage on the Alleve bottle. The medicine is extremely effective and sometimes I can skip a dosage because it has lasted so long.
As with all over the counter medicines, talk to your doctor before you begin taking Alleve.
