Great question. Both of these medications can be used to treat pain. They are not similar in how they work though. Naproxen is an anti-inflammatory drug, so it tries to decrease inflammation that could be causing the pain. Darvocet is actually a combination product that uses a codeine-like ingredient along with an acetaminophen component. If you ever have any questions about medications, talk to your pharmacist.
