No: Naproxen is a non steroidal anti inflammatory agent. Omeprazole is a protein pump inhibitor used in gastric disease/ reflux. Not the same

Not same : Go back to pharmacy. There appears to be a mix up. Omperazole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor to decrease acid is stomach. Ibuprofen is an, NSAID.. anti-inflammatory drug. No similarity here. This is a mistake.
