NEW YORK Bayer Healthcare has agreed to stop all advertising for its over-the-counter analgesic Aleve that carries the tagline “Prescription strength relief without a prescription.”

The decision came following a recommendation by the National Advertising Division (NAD) of the Council of Better Business Bureaus. The NAD had reviewed the ads after a complaint was brought by rival Wyeth Consumer Healthcare.
