My answer to Can naproxen and ibuprofen be taken simultaneously?
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
1 Naproxene is equivalent to more than 2 ibuprofens.
Pain and fever are signs of the body fighting inflammation. My 80 yr old mom takes 1 Aleve or naproxene a month as her job as caregiver is very taxing to her body. She just retired.
During her trip to Manila last week, she was confined in the hospital for 2days because of fever and leg pain. The doctors in Manila removed 3 bottles of yellow pus in her legs and treated her with antibiotics as there is bacteria (presence of fever) in her body.
