In brief: NSAIDs together

No. Ibuprofen and Naproxen are similar. Taking them together increases risk of side effects of each of them that can include ulcers and bleeding of your GI tract, decreased blood flow thru the kidneys, swelling of legs or congestive heart failure.
Long term use of any NSAID increases risk of heart attack or stroke as well.

In brief: No

Since it is the same group of medications, they share the same side effect, such as gastrointestinal bleeding.
Check the appropriate dose of one of these medications you are taking with your pcp, might be it can be optimized and you can avoid of taking another painkiller.
