How To Cure Headache While Having Atenolol And Lisinopril Together?

I AM 35 YRS OLD, I RECENTLY STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY BP. IT RUNS IN MY FAMILY BUT I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM UNTIL RECENTLY WHEN I PUT ON ALOT OF WEIGHT. I AM ON ATENOLOL 50MG AND LISINOPRIL 20MG. WHEN I TAKE THEM TOGETHER I GET A HEADACHE. I KNOW FROM READING ABOUT ATENOLOL THAT I CANT JUST TAKE ANY OTC MEDS FOR THE HEADACHE. WHAT CAN I TAKE TO GET RID OF THE HEADACHE.

Hi,

The first alternative to try would be Acetaminophen which is the safest option in a dosage of up to 1g. If that doesn't work I would advise Naproxen 550mg as another alternative.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Olsi Taka, Neurologist
