I have had major toothed pain. I usually take ibuprofen and excedrin together and it typically works, but thus time it didn't and I ended up taking aleve too. Is this safe? I feel fine now, but I'm worried about possible side effects.
This question has also been asked and answered here: Aleve vs Ibuprofen: What's the difference?
Ibuprofen and Naproxen (Aleve) are both Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, and have nearly identical effects. Excedrin is a combination of caffeine, acetaminophen (Tylenol), and ASA (Aspirin). Aspirin is also an NSAID, though with a different method of action than the other two. Since NSAIDS can be very hard on the stomach, you're biggest risk in combining them all is probably the risk of damaging your stomach. If all these drugs together didn't help, it might be time to see a doctor. You may need something stronger.
