Can I take these together?

I am at work and I am having real bad cramps (sharp painful ones), I just took some naproxen (pain reliever) about an hour ago. It doesn't seem to be working, can I take some Tylenol already or should I wait longer? I'm not a big fan of taking pain relievers but it hurts to bad not to.

  • Naproxen and Tylenol are two different classes of drugs. They may be taken together at their regular doses. DO NOT take Aleve, Motrin/Ibuprofen or any other NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory Drug) with Naproxen

  • Depends on how many naproxen you took, if you only took 2 you could safely take 1 tylenol.
