Please monitor blood pressure when usig Aleve....
I have read your medical history and am happy to know that Bayer Back and Body is allevating your pain. It contains a combination of aspirin
and caffeine giving the maximum for pain-relief.
If gout is suspected, I suggest to run blood tests to further evaluate your situation:
- complete blood work
- ERS, fibrinogen, CRP
If gout is concluded, should start proper treatment with allopurinol
together with lifestyle and diet changes.
Aleve is another good alternative to relieve your pain. Its main active ingredient is Naproxen
, another strong NSAID used to treat different types of aches.
However, please bare in mind that Aleve can raise blood pressure, that's why I strongly suggest to discuss it further with your doctor before changing therapy.
Both of them, Bayer Back and Body and Aleve are not opioid
Hope it was of help!
