Patient :How much aleve can I safely take? Pain doc says 440mg / 12 hrs. safely. Am out of state at son's wedding and even after epidural (3 weeks ago) and medpak of prednisolone (just finished) the pain is almost extreme (8/10). No history of renal or respiratory affects of aleve (dosing 1 /12hr....1 yr.) Am I safe to increase the aleve to 440/ 12hrs or 8 hrs to get through the next week?
