I have a shoulder injury. My Dr gave me Nabumetone for the muscle pain and the Butalbital/aspirin/caffeine for the tension headaches I was getting due to muscle spasms in my neck. I found out that there's a moderate interaction warning with taking them together. Should I still continue to take them? Now I'm worried. I take the Nabumetone most days and the Butalbital/aspirin/caffeine only when I need it.
the Nabume is an anti inflamitory and the other is a setative/painkiller/stimulent so this is fine to take them togeather; there isnt a high chance you will show any interaction symptoms
In my experience, which has , I admit, not been pleasant, docs rarely check the meds interactions or even side-effects when prescribing.
I'd recheck with your doc about the interactions for your own safety.
Healing on your path,
I've never heard of anything being a sedative and a stimulant but if your having neck spasms I'd think u need a muscle relaxer or a pain Med w out the caffeine like percocet works well for migraines and its easier to relax. Hope u get it worked out I'd definitely ask the Dr. About it if your worried.
