Multiple calls and messages, no response. I am eating Aleve almost like MMs.
My doctor used to tell me to alternate my "drugs." She told me to take ibuprofen (in your case Aleve...and you can take 2 at a time, max 4 per day), then take tylenol 2 hours after the ibuprofen (or Aleve). She then told me to just rotate the pills I'm taking every 2 hours. Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.
With Aleve, I think I took the Aleve, then took tylenol 2 hours later and took tylenol every 4 hours after that. And then taking Aleve when the next dosage was due.
It worked pretty well for me.
