Discussions that mention atenolol

Drug Interactions / Side Effects board

I have taken atenolol for 9 yrs and have always used Advil for headaches, etc. I recently read it can interfere with bp meds. Tylenol just doesn't cut it for my headaches so I continue with the Advil. It isn't daily, maybe a few times per week. Why is it that it's interferes and what should I worry about? Funny, my gp told me to keep taking it but my pharmacist said to take tylenol lol.....who to believe?? I've recently switched docs from a gp to an internest but forgot to ask him when I was there.

Also, is it ok to take my vitamins and supplements around the same time I take other meds? Should they be spaced?
