aleve and tylenol (acetaminophen) together, safe?

If you do: Would consider alternating them, and not taking the maximum allowable dose for each, rather take less 25% less than that. If you have hepatitis or bad liver would not take tylenol; or bad kidney or allergies to anti-inflammatory medicine/aspirin, would not take aleve (naproxen).
