I currently chewed aleve instead of swallowing it. A day after, I am experiencing pain under my tongue on the side I chewed it... Is this bad?> or will it go away?
Please let me know.. Thnaks

User avatar If the pain is due to the Aleve, most likely it will resolve on its own without long-term effects. If symptoms do not go away, then you should see a doctor to find out exactly what it is. Your local pharmacist can also advise you about these concerns relating to the taking of medication.

Best wishes to you
