Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Since motrin and naproxen are both in the same class of medications, do not take them together.

You can choose to take either one of them but I wouldn't take both in the same day.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
