So far I have always been able to stick it out until 24 hours goes by. But I think a day is coming when I won't be able to do that. Does anyone know how close together you can take Tylenol and Naproxen?

I don't have statistics to quote, but my pain doc said it was fine to take them, e even at the same time, just don't exceed recommended doseages on each. They are not related to each other, don't have any ingredients in common. There are no warnings not to take them together. There are other OTC medications that put acetaminophen and other NSAIDs together, such as some migraine meds. What is the reasoning for not taking them at the same time?

What did you decide Thor and was it okay, I know its a long way down the line but I have just been prescribed both meds for TN and told to take both daily. No one said leave an hour between them, in fact no one said anything at all.
Just seems no point in helping one symptom if I am going to create another problem.
At the moment when the intense pain kicks in I sit crying with a blanket over my head.
would appreciate your feed back on this.

Naproxen is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
Naproxen is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, gout, or menstrual cramps. Which doesn't applly to you! But, you cannot take BOTH this AND Tylenol together as it WILL create all manner of GIRD"s. Gastro Intensital Reflux Diseases' At worst, a big hole in the center of your stomach! I got one, not a great way to live! Big enough to see what I had for my last meal! Just kidding but very harmful if you do NOT seek proper medical guidance! Do NOT get to that point of no return in thinking of "the Day Is Comming... " All my best buddy!

You should npot use these two drugs simultaneously, unless directed by your physician.The combination may cause gastrointestinal upset, as well as kidney/liver damage. Other side-effects, including overdose, include: heartburn, nausea, abdominal pain, ulcers, or even gastric perforation.
If, as you say, you feel "a day is coming" when you will need to use both in a 24-hour period, please discuss this with your physician before embarking on this potentially serious medicating.
