You need to pick either ibuprofen OR Anaprox. Dont take them both the same day. They are both NSAIDS and they will tear your stomach lining up taking them together in the same day. It could cause your stomach to bleed. Now you may take acetaminophen (Tylenol, paracetamol) with either the Anaprox or the ibuprofen if you need something between NSAID doses. You may take either NSAID with Soma at night-that is fine. If your Dr prescribed the Anaprox, it would be best just to take that-no ibuprofen! Like I said, if you need additional analgesic you can take acetaminophen between Anaprox doses but be sure that you follow directions for the acetaminophen. It is fine to take Anaprox and Soma together at bedtime. Never take Anaprox on an empty stomach-always take with food to prevent damage to the stomach lining.
