It is OK: Very common combination for treating sinusitis, pneumonia, ear infections, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and infections of the skin. By mixing both medications there is a potential increase level of each drug in the blood, .

Yes: They can be used together. Naproxen is an anti-inflammatory drug so be sure not to take another pain type drug with an anti-inflammatory in it. Ask the pharmacist if you have any other drug interaction questions. Pharmacists are usually quite helpful.
