Can I take advil, Aleve (naproxen) and my muscle relaxer at the same time?

Not Advil (ibuprofen) and Alleve. These are very similar medicines, and are not recommended to be taken at the same time. (they can add up to more stomach upset, for example). I suggest you choose one or the other, perhaps with input from your doctor. You didn't name your "muscle relaxer" and there are different types, so i can't speak to that.

I took Aleve (naproxen) around 11 am. This morning, it is now 4:30 pm, is it safe to take Advil. I pulled a muscle in my shoulder and damaged a rib?

NSAIDS. NSAIDs (the common over the counter anti-inflammatories) are good for muscle strains and overuse injuries. Aleve (naproxen) and Advil (ibuprofen) are common NSAIDs. Recommend you stick with one or the other. I like naproxen (Aleve) dosed 500 mg 2 times daily with food. Ibuprofen (Advil) is dosed 800 mg 3 times daily, so less convenient. Save $$ and buy naproxen (same as Aleve) but lower cost. Read more...
