In brief: Advil=Ibuprofen

Aleve (naproxen)=Naproxyn BOTH are NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory) Medications and individual responses differ..
.Aleve (naproxen) is longer acting so dosage is every 8 hours (max) Advil may be give every 6 hours TRY BOTH ..see which works best FOR YOU! Hope this helps! Dr Z
