Someone who worked as a dentist's assitant, and was married to a dentist for years told my dad that when you mix Aleve and Ibuprofen it creates a super strong pain killer that's on the level with narcotic painkillers like hydrocodone.
My dad tried it after having a root canal and confirmed that this was so.
I don't take hydrocodone, but I have done the Aleve+Ibuprofen thing a couple of times recently and it works WONDERS for my back pain. Ibuprofen alone, even in double doses does nothing for me, not to mention Tylenol. Aleve also does little for me when I take it alone.
I'm wondering, however, if when I take these two together I'm doing damage to my body. Does anyone know?

So what happens when I take Ibuprofen and Aleve together?

Yes, all drugs do damage. However, sometime the benefits outweigh the harm.
If your pain is that bad, I'd go to the doctor where my condition could be monitored.
Incidentally, neither Aleve nor Ibuprofen do much for me. Aspirin is still MY most effective OTC pain drug.
