Reviews for Naproxen to treat Gout, Acute
Review by im a aleveir:
Aleve (naproxen): I suffer from gout in my feet periodically because I do not take preventative medicines. My last bout I tried Tylenol extra strength first and got no relief. I switched to Aleve gel caps and immediately felt the pain decrease. I am a believer and also an Aleveir, thanks a lot.

Aleve (naproxen): Worked very well. Felt the pain intensifying, got the Aleve a few hours later, started with 2 tablets then 1 every 8 hours. Will do this for a few days. Very rapid relief of Gout big toe pain.

naproxen: Aleve works better than anything I've tried. Like other users have stated take 3-4 initially ever 8 hours then reduce to 1-2 ever 8 hours until gout attack is completely gone. It took 1 day to reduce a full-on gout attack to a state where it is barely noticeable.

Aleve (naproxen): Really worked for me. I had significant pain and inflamation of my big toe. Symptoms were getting worse until I took Aleve. Almost immediate (1/2 hr) relief from pain and within one day of use the pain was gone and by the 2nd day the swelling was reduced.

naproxen: 2 OTC naproxen (Aleve) every 8 hours starting with onset of gout attack with pain; then 2 Aleve every 12 hours for 3 days, or until pain is gone; reduce to 1 Aleve every 12 hours as soon as possible.
NOTE: This works great for acute control of pain, but be SURE to see your MD about starting you on Allopurinol to markedly reduce chances of getting gout attacks (reduces uric acid excess).

Aleve (naproxen): At the first sign of Gout I pop two Aleve Liquid Gels. Usually is enough to kill it. I'll sometimes chase it with tylenol arthritis if I wake up in the morning with a full blown attack. Good partial fix if you can't get to the doctor for prednisone or any other gout medication.
