Can i take aleve (naproxen) and excedrin migraine at the same time?

NSAID treatments: There is not much use in taking Alleve and Excedrin migraine at the same time. Either one or the other should be used. When people are taking many of these in the same day for headaches, sometimes a cycle of headache symptoms results, which is sometimes called a rebound headache.

Can you take an Aleve (naproxen) and an Excedrin migraine within the same hour? The Aleve (naproxen) isn't helping

Technically, yes: Aleve (naproxen) contains naprosen, and excedrin contains acetominiphen, two different classes of pain relievers. However, it often takes at least an hour for these meds to work. you should wait for at least an hour to take the second one. If this doesn't help, consider going to your local ER for treatment.
