No, definitely not. With all NSAID's, there is an increased risk of bleeding, and also an increased risk of ulcers both in the stomach and duodenum. If the Meloxicam isn't taking care of the inflammation, talk to your doc to see if they can up your dose or prescribe you something different, like ketorolac.
Naproxen and Meloxicam are both NSAID'S (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and must not be taken together. Also don't take Advil (ibuprofen) or Aspirin with Meloxicam since these are also NSAID's. The only over the counter pain medicine you can safely take is Tylenol. I don't know what kind of pain you are taking Meloxicam for, but if it's not helping enough let your doctor know. He may be able to increase the dosage or change the medication.
No. It causes a heightened bleeding risk. The meloxicam can do anything on its own that naproxen can do. You can add Tylenol to meloxicam though
