Yes but caution: Tylenol (acetaminophen) and alleve work in distinct ways to alleviate pain. But just because they are available over-the-counter doesn't mean they are entirely safe. Always take alleve with food, do not mix tylenol (acetaminophen) with alcohol, and keep well-hydrated. Ses your doctor if you have continued need for these meds. They may alleviate symptoms, but do not get at the root cause.

Yes: Yes, there is no problem taking these two medications even closer together. They are both pain relievers but only aleve (naproxen) is an anti-inflammatory rx. What is to be avoided is taking two anti-inflammatory rx such as aleve (naproxen) and advil.
