As my injury heals I'm finding myself switching from Advil to Aleve.
I find that 2 Aleve provides me with a more consistent controlling of the inflamation and corresponding sciatic problems, whereas Advil tends to blast it quickly then fade rapidly.
I found that I would have to take 3 Advil in the morning, 3 at lunch, then nothing at night - whereas with Aleve I only need to take the 2 in the morning. But I also found that Aleve doesn't do much for bad inflamation - only moderate amounts.
I'm kind of wondering what your thoughts are on that subject.
