No. Aleve's active ingredient is naproxen. Motrin's active ingredient is ibuprofen.

No,there is no ibuprofen in Aleve. Aleve is naproxen. However, they are both in the NSAID family (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories). If you have any issues taking ibuprofen, you'll want to be careful when taking Aleve.

Aleve is naproxen sodium, not ibuprofen. You are thinking of Advil, not Aleve. For further clarification, Motrin IS ibuprofen, Motrin is a brand name for ibuprofen as is Advil. Aleve is a different medication, naproxen and it contains NO Motrin, or ibuprofen, or Advil. Your statement is not correct at all.
