    Naproxen is an NSAID, (non steroidal anti inflammatory) that will help with both the pain and swelling. Tylenol will only help with the pain.

    For these drugs, no matter what your weight, you need to follow the directions given on the label for maximum dosing, because with concern is with overtaxing your liver (Tylenol) and possible bleeding problems with the Aleve. Taking more than the recommended amounts of either one of these drugs will not increase their effectiveness, and only put you at risk. Wishing you a quick recovery,

    Your 350 lbs? and you were playing tennis? Was it on a Wii?

    Don’t take any. Be a man.

    I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and suffered from Golfers Elbow for several years. No I do not play Golf. Anyway the Doctor was giving me steroid shots into the elbow, which worked for about 3 months and then it came back with vengeance. Just so happened I ended up at PT and then sent forward to learn Pilate’s. During the Class we had to start to take our body weight up onto our elbows and I protested: Golfers elbow! The PT simply said ‘If you do not do this you will never cure your Golfers Elbow!’ I am thinking: cure, I have had loads of injections and they did not cure it. Anyway very slowly over about six weeks I started to let my elbow take the strain and the PT was correct, cured! Best of Luck
