Has anyone had a bad interaction with Spiro and NSAIDS?

I've got a bad back and I tweaked it yesterday. I've only been taking Spiro less than 2 wks and it's a low dose, but ibuprofen, naproxen and my prescription muscle relaxer are all on the possible drug interaction list.

So I don't know what to take...is it really a big deal? Any thoughts?

There was a response to this question in another thread (which I don't have time to look for now). Basically, the use of NSAIDs in conjunction with Spiro can increase potassium further, leading to possibly fatal complications.

I've had problems with my sciatic nerve in the past (blinding, sweaty, crying pain) and the only thing that helps is motrin so I understand where you're coming from. I would personally avoid taking them together as much as possible.

Thanks, Lady Odd Duck. I searched for the previous thread you mentioned as well. All good information! I'm pretty paranoid about mixing, so I'm glad I know why you're not supposed to mix those drugs. I'll figure something else out.
