My doctor prescribed Alleve and aspirin to be taken together every morning after my knee surgery. Can these medications be combined safely?

In brief: Purpose?

Although they can probably be safely taken together, I have not seen this combination recommended.
You should post this question to the doctor who prescribe the combination if you are concerned.

In brief: Depends

Your doctor probably is the best person to ask.
Likely used this combination previously. Or if not they can clarify their order.
