Can you mix Aleve with ibuprofen?

Aleve (naproxen) and ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) are both NSAIDs. You should not take these at the same time as you will be duplicating drug therapy, increasing your risk of side effects and most likely wasting money. Take one or the other but not both together. Take both of these medications with food or milk to prevent stomach upset.
