Can I take Aleve D while taking metoprolol?

Aleve D (naproxen w/pseudoephedrine) contains an oral decongestant with the NSAID. Generally, metoprolol (Toprol or Lopressor) is indicated for hypertension or certain heart conditions. Oral decongestants should not be taken unless prescribed by your physician, if you have any type of heart related issue. The decongestants can constrict the small blood vessels and make the blood pressure go up and the heart have to work harder.

The plain Aleve product would be fine.
