Related Info: Aspirin, Acetaminophen
Is There Aspirin in Aleve [posted 10/15/98]
Answer: No. But, it has many of the same properties. Aspirin is a permanent platelet inhibitor, Aleve is not. Other than that they're similar medications(aspirin need to be taken about 8-12 a day to achieve aleve's antiinflammatory effect.)
