I have had catarac surgery and was told not to take any aspirin products, so I need to know if Naproxen has aspirin it it's ingredients.
Naproxen carries the same bleeding risks that aspirin does. If you are avoiding aspirin to prevent bleeding during surgery, you dont want to be taking naproxen either. To avoid surgical bleeding, the only over the counter pain reliever you can take is acetaminophen otherwise known as Tylenol. It is the only OTC pain med that doesnt increase risk of bleeding.
It's amazing how no-one has given the correct information for this question!! Google naproxen and read the ingredients plus the side effects of using Naproxen.. Naproxen DOES contain ASPRIN!! People who have allergies to asprin could have some side effects from naproxen.. The worst being lips, tongue, and throat swelling!! I was told before becoming a nurse that naproxen doesn't contain any asprin products.. WRONG!! I had to be care flighted and put on a vent for 36 hrs all bc a medical professional didn't do her job by actually looking up the drug she had given me and verifying the ingredients first!!
