Brief Answer:
No interactions

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

ibuprofen won't interact with either of the benzodiazepines you've mentioned, so they can be taken together. Using tetrazepam is not advised though because there had been reports about increased incidence of serious skin reactions in patients who used the drug as a muscle relaxant.

Kind Regards!

Thanks for the answer!

It's very interesting because I have taken it twice in my life so far and both times by skin burnt slightly after using it.

Can you recommend an alternative effective muscle relaxant with a lower incidence of side effects?

It doesn't have to be a zepam.

Thank you.

All the best

Brief Answer:
Orphenadrine

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

orphenadrine or carisoprodol can be used. You won't find a muscle relaxant without side-effects! Most of them cause drowsiness among other side-effects (tachycardia, dry mouth and throat etc).
Regarding the dosage, carisoprodol can be used at a dose of 350mg three times per day and orphenadrine at a dose of 100mg twice per day.

I hope you find my answer helpful!
You can contact me again if you'd like further clarifications.

Kind Regards!
