Always take Aleve with food to protect your stomach. Omega 3's taken regularly can possibly help with your joint pain, as well as help with your stomach issues. It helps me in both cases.
You can safely take that amount, but it's better to involve your doctor as daily use at high doses can cause gastric issues and there are prescptions to help prevent (and some help repair) any damage already present.
Bell if your having to take them that often you should check with your doctor and get something that works longer you have to protect your stomach taking this many this close together.
Aleve is 225mg of naproxen sodium per pill and says take no more than 3 a day. I take prescription strength naproxen sodium which is 500mg per pill and take 1 pill twice a day. If you need to take 4 Aleve's a day, then contact your doctor and maybe he can give you the prescription strength.
