Ibuprofen vs naproxen

Is naproxen stronger/more effective than ibuprofen, or just longer lasting? Given that I only get 14 naproxen tablets on prescription, it’s a very expensive option. I only take them when I have painful flare-ups (as don’t want to use them for more than 3 days as stomach lining tablets upset my stomach, and are another expense) but these are quite frequent! So will ibuprofen do the same job if I take them regularly (short term)? Thanks.
