Thank you for the query.

Yes, you can take this medicines together. Zyrtec is a very safe medicine and does not give interaction with any other medicine. Naproxen is a good choice for pain management, however you should be aware of stomach issues it can cause. That is why it should be taken with proton pump inhibitor (Omeprasole 20 mg once a day) to protect the stomach.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
