The rest are ok to take together unless you have an allergy to these meds or some other medical condition such as diabetes or hypertension that could be affected by these drugs.

Should be fine: While i wouldn't recommend you continue taking this name brand of pseudophed, the issue with Naproxen and nsaids is more in the third trimester.
