Can I mix diclofenac 75 mg and 2 aleve (naproxen)?

Diclofenac and Aleve (naproxen) Dear Jessi: Diclofenac is in the NSAIDs class of anti-inflammtory drugs and Aleve (Naproxen) is also a NSAID. The risk for side effects with NSAIDs is high, such as stomach ulcers. I discourage patients from taking more than 1 type of NSAID together as side effects can be serious even if you don't have stomach pain. There are other effects, such as kidney and liver problems with NSAIDs. Nisha.

Ask the Dr. The Dr who diagnosed the injury is the best to ask for recommendations specific to your case - but it's worth trying the sling to see if the protection it provides reduces your pain. The medications you mention do not have reports of problems in combo, so just use as directed and notice anything you don't like. I hope you heal well. See Dr if worsens or lasts too long (weeks).
