Lacunar infarcts.Few of the lesions are elongated perpendicular to the ventricles in the periventricular region suggesting possibility of demyelinating plaques of multiple sclerosis.

I'll highly appreciate if anyone can tell me how serious is this lacunar infarct and what are the treatment options available?
Are medicines prescribed adequate as they create dizziness after evening and little pain in stomach at night.
When Amlokind(Amlodipine 5 mg Atenolol 50mg) was used , pulse rate went to 45 level. Is there any alternative to this medicine?
