I don’t see why not. I’m no doctor and I don’t even play one on t.v. lol. But since they are the same kind of meds (nsaids) why not. As long as you are not mixing them at the same time. Maybe use one for two weeks and the other for the other two weeks of the month. That’s as long as you are using them for a chronic pain. Not just an occasional headache. It may help or be more beneficial to switch those two so that your body doesn’t build up that dreaded tolerance that can stifle chronic pain relief. But again I’m the only one suggesting that it would be ok to use both. But remember just not at the same time or one ibuprofen in the a.m. and a naproxen in the p.m. let the drugs.com medical constituents complaints begin... line starts at the water fountain. lol!
