Call your doctor : You are already maxed up on the analgesics, adding advil while you had naproxen 500 mg 4 hours ago isn't a good idea and would cause problems to your stomach/kidneys. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be better, but it didn't help you to start with, you can still try it again, but call your doctor or go to urgent care or ER if no improvement, good luck
