    I’ve been prescribed propranolol but yesterday I fell in ice and bruised my back and neck after hitting my head. (I didn’t realise how slippy it was until I had fallen.) Never had snow like this in the UK from what I’ve experienced but I’m in quite a lot of pain. Am I allowed to take painkillers like ibuprofen aspirin paracetamol etc while on propranolol? My dosage is 1 40mg in the morning and 1 40mg in the evening

    Check the little booklet you get inside you medication box. It's really long winded but your answer for your specific medicine will be in there (much more reliable than googling it). Hope your head isn't too painful

    I’ve been on it for four years and taken paracetamol and ibuprofen many times! Check the booklet or google if you want to see what’s recommended, from my experience you should be fine to take them (in their recommended dosages of course).

    If you have the little leaflet that came with it that will say, but if you can't find it you can call a pharmacy. They have access to all that information so can look it up for you.
    As far as I'm aware it's fine though.
    You can often find online versions of the leaflets for specific medications too so you can Google something like "propanolol information leaflet", find a result, check that the details on the online leaflet match what the box says then see what information it gives.

    Hope that helps and that you feel better soon.

    Thank you, so far I’ve been taking aspirin every morning and night along with my propranolol. It’s starting to get a little better but still sore enough for me to struggle to move freely. I guess it’s better than not being able to move my back or neck at all at least!
    Thank you all for the support and the help.

    No worries. If it doesn't improve at all in the next couple of days though you might want to call your GP surgery so you can sort something out to just check there's no damage or anything. Necks and backs are pretty delicate after all.
