what do we take for pain? on Atenelol & Atacand

Have been on atenelol 2 months and atacand 2 years.I have a severe case of white coat.Go in on Monday I have a sprained muscle and a lot of back pain but have muscle relaxers,Does anyone know if it is ok to take them and if not what is?
My pressure was 170/106 at the drs and 122/80 at drugstore directly after.They put me on 50mg of atenelol I was so tired 2 weeks ago they reduced it to 25 they will check me Monday.Trying to find ways to control my nervousness.My readings at home are around 118/75.I was put on atacand at 130/90 no higher.I sure do not want a stroke so I think I could get that nervous at other times and it might happen.I do not know what to take with Atenolol.

Re: what do we take for pain? on Atenelol & Atacand


I wouldn't expect any obvious interaction between atenolol and any of the common pain reliever/muscle spasm relaxers other than the obvious additional lethargy. Don't fly a plane with the combo.
As we all know, the best place for a bad back is flat out on the sofa and then an additional bit of snooziness is always welcome.

What meds did they give you? I like SOMA (carisoprodyl) for back-pain. Unfortunately it's an ancient drug and some pharmacies don't stock it...the big online drugstore always has it though.
Valium my second choice as a muscle relaxant.
I HATE how spacey Flexeril (generic escapes me) makes me feel and that's often the first one they want to prescribe.
