Aleve is a drug from the anti-inflammatory, non-steroidal family of drugs. These drugs are called NSAIDs. Its generic name is Naproxen. Aleve makes the hormones in the body that cause pain and inflammation back off, allowing relief from pain and swelling. It's an over-the-counter drug, but strong enough so that two tablets allow all day pain relief for many people.
