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.
