Mark, that's good that you can take Aleve. It's a good reliever when it works for you. I know that I was up to 6/day at one point and it still wouldn't do that much! I'm still waiting for the Humira to kick in. They say on an average of 4 injections (8 weeks) and it'll kick in. I'm crossing my fingers!

My Rheumy won't let me take anything in the form of Tylenol, Aleve or any other of those pain relievers because they tend to add to the toxicity of my liver with me already being on drugs for RA that do that, which have to be monitered. So I just try to live with the pain. I'm on Humira now which will hopefully kick in soon. Enbrel never did and I'm crossing my fingers with Humira! You could ask your Rheumy about taking Aleve.
I have been taking Daypro from the onset of my RA, was wondering if I switched to Aleve, if it would be the same effect. I take one every morn. used to be on two a day. I'm trying to cut down my expenses as much as possible, I take alot of meds. I tried finding the difference on the computer, but they compare Aleve to celebrex.
