Depending on when, where, and how bad I'm hurting, these typically do the trick for me. They definitely knock out my headaches! I really like the I only need to take one for the day to get typical results!

Aleve and Advil are my go to products for the migraines that I get. They don't take away my migraine completely, but they help take it about 60% away, enough so that I'm able to do things throughout the day without the migraine stopping me from doing them. This is a great product.

Aleve works better than any other over the counter pain reliever that I've tried. I recently have experienced a slew of tension headaches due to an eye ailment, and Aleve helps me to be able to power through work, life, and not be held back by the otherwise debilitating head tension.

I tend to reach for Aleve when purchasing pain reliever. I often have shoulder pain and pain from a pinched nerve, Aleve seems to give me relief. Even when allergies are giving me a head of ear ache I reach for these.

I keep a bottle in my console and another in my medicine cabinet.

I don’t take pain relief medicine often, but when I do I always use Aleve! It is the only one that seems to get rid of my pain and it works fast! And my favorite part is you only take 2 pills every 24 hours, unlike some brands that have you take 2-4 pills every 4-6 hours. I would definitely recommend Aleve to anyone! And, would especially recommend it to those that can’t ever seem to find relief from other brands!

This brand is faster and more efficient when it comes to relieving pain, as compared to others. It's also more economical and almost always available at any store.
