In brief: Combination of these

Meds does require medical supervision and follow up to minimize bad side effects.

In brief: Yes...sort of

The Gabapentin and flexeril/elavil can make one sleepy initially but is tolerable after a while if you're on the right dose.
Naproxen is ok as long as you're mindful of it's GI side effects (ulcers). You may want to ask your doc about the flexeril/elavil combo - they are sort of similar drugs and may be too strong of a combined effect for you.
