Liquid gel aleve is the only pain med that works. Narcotics make me sick, Tylenol doesn't work. But I've had dark pee with pink tint. Is from aleve?

I took one liquid gel aleve (naproxen) at 3pm Monday, can I take 1 800mg ibuprofen now at 130am Tuesday?

Pain med dosing: No problem. Taking an ibuprofen now will be fine. Aleve (Naproxen) is usually dosed at 220 or 250 mg per pill without a prescription. The max safe daily dose of naproxen is 500 mg every 12 hours. The max safe dose for Ibuprofen is 800 mg every 8 hrs. In general, it is probably best if you stick with one or the other. Even tho it is not quite 12 hrs since the Aleve, it is fine to take ibu now. ...Read more
