The question is between the two drugs (Diphenhydramine) and Aleve (naproxen)
31 Aug 2012
One thought. Naproxen and Aleve are the same. You do not take both at the same time. Ibuprofen and aspirin are in this group as well. These are called NSAIDs.
Generally to control minor pain Tylenol is taken and then two hours later one of the other is taken, if the first doesn't work. Or start the other way. Acetaminophen is the name for Tylenol. this is not an NSAID.
Either of these groups will be found in cold or allergy medicines so be very careful not to take much acetaminophen as it is limited per day and can cause liver problems. Any more questions?
