How long does it take for Aleve (naproxen) to start working and is it ok to take it with acetaminophen and tramadol?

In brief: Should start 1/2 hr

Aleve (naproxen) should begin working in 20-30 minutes.
You could take 1 or 2 tablets (220mg each) and it should last 8 hours. Works on pain and inflammation and could be safely used with Acetaminophen (just a pain reliever) and tramadol (a much stronger pain reliever). Adding an anti-inflammatory can reduce the need for the pain relievers.

In brief: As soon as 1/2 hr

As soon as 1/2 hr and ok to take with Acetaminophen (as long as less than 3000 mg of the latter).
Tramadol and Aleve (naproxen) share chemistry and combination should be avoided.
