Taken Mobizox for back pain. Want anti-inflammatory medication

Hello. I am a 67 year old female, generally in good physical condition, tho I do take blood pressure medication . I fell and twisted my back 3 weeks ago. The left lower back went into spasm , such that it was difficult to sit or to sleep. A friend gave me some Mobizox, and I took half a tab at bedtime and was able to sleep. After a few days the pain was less so I stopped taking the Mobizox. But the pain never fully went away, my movements have been a bit limited and now my left upper back and shoulder tighten up. I am thinking to take more Mobizox as I think I do need an anti-inflammatory , but now I need to know the correct dosage and frequency, and how that might interact with my blood pressure med. Please advise me if you can. Thank you Ronnie

You may take MIBIZOX in the dose of one tablet twice a day after meals for 5 to 7 days.
Apply local heat on your back and take proper rest.

You should be alright soon although gradually.
