Aleve for premenstrual and mid-cycle acne

222 posts in this topic

I don't see how taking 2 Aleve tablets per day for a few days each month could have such an effect.

i'm from canada.. anyone knows a website that i can order it off since i don't *think* they sell it here in canada? thanks!

Aleve is just Naproxin (sp?) I am sure they sell that in Canada. I used to live in Buffalo, NY so I know for sure they had it in Ontario.

Good luck!

Why is this in Adult Acne? We need a girl's forum or something. :confused:

Uh oh! I took Aleve for a week. No wonder my stomach is hurting Although on the bottle it says do not exceed ten days as it can cause liver problems and as you said internal bleeding

Does regular aspirine work?

I suppose it might help ... aspirin is an anti-inflammatory as well. But I suspect that Advil is more effective than aspirin .... and I find Aleve more effective than Advil.

I'm taking it again this week, and it is DEFINITELY working. I started as soon as the first tiny zits popped up, and 24 hours later they'd all gone down again. :dance:

BTW, I take EFAs daily ... they are definitely great for my skin, and I see a huge difference when I'm taking them. But I would still get the PMS pimples if it weren't for Aleve.

I'm a little confused on how long I'm supposed to take it for. Is it 3-4 days before the period for 2x a day, or is it for a longer period?

Last time I did the aspirin mask for a few days in a row, and my stomach continuously hurt for a few days afterwards.

3-4 days before my period, 2x daily works well for me. You don't want to take it any longer than you have to.

I can't see any reason why the aspirin mask would make your stomach hurt ..... probably coincidence. Cramps, maybe?

I only break out about 14 days after my period starts for like an entire week should I take the aleve at like day 11 after my period or do I take it for the week I break out?
