Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I believe the Aleve is leading to my atrial fibrillation. It only happens after taking aleve and submides within 24 hours after taking Aleve. It may be there are other drugs involved (suspect caffeine) but Aleve is the trigger.

    Great Product, but I had atrial fib after taking for 2 days, just looking for triggers.
