Can Aleve cause better sleep; beyond pain reduction?

I've noticed I sleep a LOT better when I take Aleve. Normally, I have some discomforts: muscles aches, but not strong pain.  Usually, 4 hrs after I go to sleep I wake needing to empty my bladder. Then going back to sleep; sometimes can take a long time. IF I take Aleve right before sleep; I sleep for 6-8 hours; without needing to go to bathroom.

I really appreciate a good nite's sleep and wonder if taking Aleve nightly is unadvised.  I have CFIDS, therefore unrestorative sleep is a big issue!
How do you believe the Aleve is helping?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Aleve may not directly induce sleep. It could alleviate pain symptoms and hence may promote sleep.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted. Long term use is however not recommended as it increases the risk of stroke.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
