If I take metformin and glyburide. Is it OK to take Aleve

There is an interaction possibility between Aleve (naproxen) and glyburide (Micronase). Anytime you mix NSAIDs (like Aleve) and sulfonylureas (like glyburide) there is an increased risk of hypoglycemia. If you are looking to relieve pain or fever, Tylenol (acetaminophen) would be a better option. If you must take Aleve, do regular blood sugar tests and keep rescue dextrose with you. All your health care providers should have a complete list of the medications you take, even those just occasionally.
