Is it OK to have IB profi when I am on Atenolol ?

I take 25 mg of Atenolol a day to control PVC s and I have two questions. I am getting sick and want to take IB profin for a headache and wasn t sure if it was ok or not. Also, I cannot remember if I took my Atenolol last night and wondered if it would be better to take one this morning or wait until tonight when I normally take other words would it be better to possibly take double or to possibly skip a dose?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Regarding a forgotten dose of Atenolol, it is better to skip a dose rather than to take it twice. Overdosage may cause dizziness. You can safely take ibuprofen for the headache as such occasional doses do not produce much effect.
