Yes: That is an acceptable dose. Try to always take aleve (naproxen) with food to reduce the risk of GI effects.

No: Goodys powder contains Aspirin and acetominophen ( tylenol). Aspirin and aleve should not be mixed. You should also not mix ibuprophen containing medications with either goody's powder, aspirin, or naproxen.

With doctor order.: 2 aleve (naproxen) are the equivalent of 440mg of Naproxen sodium. Prescription strength Naproxen is 500mg. So it is possible to use under the prescription or recommendation of your physician.

Safety precautions: I imagine they don't want you to get confused and exceed the maximum daily dosage. See Dr Hermansen's answer too.
