Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Aleve can reduce the ability of blood to clot which can lead to bleeding. So, Aleve should be discontinued before tooth extraction. Sotalol and losartan are safe and will not increase your risk of bleeding. Therefore you can continue taking sotalol and losartan.

Take care.
