Is there any problem with taking both a muscle relaxer and Motrin 800 if I take 10 mg lisinopril daily?
Medications: I would not take motrin with lisinopril. Motrin can affect kidney function, and lisinopril modulates kidney function to regulate blood pressure. you can induce a mild kidney injury depending on how much motrin you take a day. I would use the muscle relaxer, and use tylenol (acetaminophen) extra strength instead. This will not interact with lisinopril. Hope this helps. ...Read more
My fiancé is prescribed 20mg of lisinopril daily. He took 60 mg tonight of lisinopril thinking it wAs his muscle relaxer. Is he going to be ok?
Yes but needs to be: He needs to be careful when he tries to stand up as there is some risk of excessive drop in his BP which can make him feel dizzy/faint or even fall if the BP drop is substantive. If he can be careful for 24-48 hours, then he will be fine. Give him extra liquids to drink and keep him well hydrated for 24-36 hours. ...Read more

I take a protein made by muscle pharm called combat protein series and it contains micellar casein is that safe with me taking lisinpril and htzc?
Yes: If the supplement is purely a protein powder as described above, then yes. But given the unique pharmacokinetic features of micellar casein ("slow-release") it may be prudent to take your blood pressure medicines (and other medicines) at a different time of day from your protein supplement so as not to interfere with absorption. ...Read more

Trauma, if you are not on birth control, smoke, inactive, recently sitting around for prolonged periods of time, and calf not red and shinny, hot, it is unlikely you have a blood clot.

Be careful here: If you exercise and have pain at the time of exercise, probably ok. If pain persists/worsens for more that 20-30 minutes after, you may be overdoing.

Hold this position for 12-15 seconds. Gradually work up to 20 reps. ...Read more
